[Question #2323] C. Trachomatis

46 months ago
Hello, I received treatment recently for a re exposure to c. trachomatis. I was first treated with Azithromycin, at this time I did not have any symptoms. After my second exposure I was treated with 7 days twice a day of doxycycline. Prior to that I had vaginal irritation, abdominal pain, and possibly abnormal discharge. I say possibly because it had  yellow tint. I have finished my course of doxycycline and still have mild vaginal burning/itchiness/ also some rectal irritation and very very mild right lower abdominal pain. My question is could this be resistant to antibiotics? And why would my symptoms linger after treatment? I spoke to my doctor and she believes it is just a coincidence and may be due to something else.  She said she would be shocked if this treatment did not work as I took everything as prescribed. The irritation is mild, but did improve while on doxycycline. What is the treatment for persistent chlamydia? And are there cases that are untreatable? Thanks.

Repetitive question which has been answered in the past.  you do not know that you have recurrent or persistent chlamydia.  Work with your doctor on this.
