I'm freaking out cause my doctor was not reassuring when I got tested...the other day I started bleeding pretty bad when I was having sex and I went to get tested and she said she was testing for clamydia...does anyone know what the common symptoms are for a girl?????
From the CDC's website:
Chlamydia is known as a "silent" disease because about three quarters of infected women and about half of infected men have no symptoms. If symptoms do occur, they usually appear within 1 to 3 weeks after exposure.
In women, the bacteria initially infect the cervix and the urethra (urine canal). Women who have symptoms might have an abnormal vaginal discharge or a burning sensation when urinating. When the infection spreads from the cervix to the fallopian tubes (tubes that carry eggs from the ovaries to the uterus), some women still have no signs or symptoms; others have lower abdominal pain, low back pain, nausea, fever, pain during intercourse, or bleeding between menstrual periods. Chlamydial infection of the cervix can spread to the rectum.
Men with signs or symptoms might have a discharge from their penis or a burning sensation when urinating. Men might also have burning and itching around the opening of the penis. Pain and swelling in the testicles are uncommon.
Men or women who have receptive anal intercourse may acquire chlamydial infection in the rectum, which can cause rectal pain, discharge, or bleeding. Chlamydia can also be found in the throats of women and men having oral sex with an infected partner.

hello! I was diagnosticated with Clamydia. The doctor said that we shouldn't have sexual contact during the treatment, but we couldn't help it and we had vaginal contact without pentetration and anal sex once. Does this nullify the treatment? What should we do?
The main reason for saying no sexual contact is that you might still be infectious and infect or re-infect your partner, and under these conditions resistance to the treatment can develop. (It's the same reason why the full course of antibiotics should be taken.) It doesn't nullify your treatment, but don't do it again.
What should you do???? CONTROL YOURSELF.
