- A: 1. If you have been diagnosed with chlamydia and your boyfriend has been diagnosed with gonorrhoea, you should assume that BOTH of you have BOTH infections, irrespective of what the tests say. This is actually very common: a large proportion of people with gonorrhoea also have chlamydia. Both of you should have effective treatment for both conditions before you have sex again.2. Ciprofloxacin is sometimes effective against gonorrhoea, but these days many cases are resistant, and the appropriate medication is ceftriaxone. Neither ciprofloxacin nor ceftriaxone are a reliable treatment for chlamydia.3. If you both have chlamydia and gonorrhoea and one of you gets treated for chlamydia and the other gets treated for gonorrhoea you will both still have both infections as soon as you have sex again (you’ll reinfect each other with the bug the other one just treated).4. Go to an STI clinic together. Get treated for BOTH infections together, at the same time. If you have results for previous tests, bring them with you.5. Either infection can cause later fertility problems if left untreated. There is no cut off time between safe and unsafe, but the longer you leave an infection untreated, the more likely you are to have problems later.
- Question about chlamydia and gonorrhea…?
- Q: Hi all,My boyfriend went to the doctor yesterday, and the doctor is testing him for chlamydia and gonorrhea.I asked him where he’d have gotten them from and he says from me.Apart from my anger at him suggesting I slept around, the fact is that before I was with him, I hadn’t had sex for at least 4 years.Admittedly I was a bit of a wild child back then but I sorted myself out and *thought* I had found someone I wanted to be with long term.If I did give him either of these STDs, it means I’ve been infected for at least 4 years, and I am really worried about what it might have done to me. I’ve made an appointment with the doctor to have every possible test for STDs, but the appointment is after the weekend, and in the mean time, can anyone please tell me what the implications of having an STD undiagnosed for this length of time, as the information on the internet is not telling me what I want to know.I feel sick that I might have ruined my chances of having kids, and as yet I have not tried to get pregnant, I have no idea how to find out if I could have become infertile.Please help me, I feel absolutely sick about this situation.
- A: It is good that you are getting tested. I would talk with you bf and about your relationship with him. But that is your choice. A person can have an STD for their whole life and not know it. A person can have lets say herpes for their whole life and never ever have an outbreak. So you could have an STD. Only the doctor’s can help discover that for you. As for ruining your chances to have children I would relax and deal with getting tested first. Once the results come back then deal with that. Take one day at a time and take one problem at a time. Good luck!
