Treatments for Chlamydia

Treatments for Chlamydia:

Treatment of chlamydia infection starts with prevention. Preventive measures include seeking regular medical care throughout your lifetime. Regular medical care allows your health care professional to best evaluate your risks of chlamydia infection and regularly test for the disease with a simple swab test. These measures greatly increase your chances of catching and curing the disease in its earliest stage before serious complications occur.

Other preventive measures include abstaining from sexual activity or having sex only within a mutually monogamous relationship in which neither partner is infected with chlamydia or another sexually transmitted disease. Latex condoms also provide some protection when used properly.

Treatment for a chlamydia infection without complications includes oral antibiotic medication, such as azithromycin, doxycycline or erythromycin. It is also important to abstain from sexual activity until the infection is cured and to treat all sexual partners, even if they have no symptoms.

Hospitalization may be necessary if there are complications, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, abscess or high fever.

Discussion of treatments for Chlamydia:

Chlamydia-Disease Information: DSTD (Excerpt)

Chlamydia can be easily treated and cured with antibiotics. A single dose of azithromycin or a week of doxycycline (twice daily) are the most commonly used treatments. All sex partners must also be treated. (Source: excerpt from Chlamydia-Disease Information: DSTD)

Chlamydia-Disease Information: DSTD (Excerpt)

If you are told you have chlamydia or any other STD and receive drug treatment, you should notify all of your recent sex partners so that they can see a health care provider and be treated. A sex partner needs treatment even if (s)he has no symptoms. This will reduce the risk that your partners will develop serious complications from chlamydia and reduce your risk of becoming re-infected. Do not have sex until both you and your sex partner complete your chlamydia drug treatment. (Source: excerpt from Chlamydia-Disease Information: DSTD)

Chlamydia: NWHIC (Excerpt)

Chlamydia is curable with certain antibiotics like tetracyclin, erthyromicin, and azithromycin (but not penicillin, as is the case for other STDs). It is very important that a person with chlamydial infection take all of the prescribed medication, even after symptoms disappear. To be sure that the infection is cured, a follow-up visit to the doctor of clinic 1 to 2 weeks after finishing the medication may be necessary. Current research is focusing on the creation of rapid diagnostic tests and on the basic process of chlamydial infection. (Source: excerpt from Chlamydia: NWHIC)
