Throat infection chlamydia

Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection chlamydia


Avatar m tn Before receiving my test result back I received oral sex from my girlfriend who then developed a sore throat. What I want to know is what are the possibilities that the chlamydia was transmitted orally? I hear it is uncommon and that it cannot survive well in the throat? Does the infection last in the throat if the symptoms appear to go away or does this mean the bacteria is dying?
Avatar n tn How big is the risk of getting chlamydia in the throat? and if so what are the long term damages? I have had a chlamydia test done for both the throat and vagina and both were negative but i am worried still about the throat one. This test was done 8 months ago but i only recently read more about the throat chlamydia. Could it transfer through my body south if i do have it? can it be transmitted to a partner if i perform oral? please someone help me!
Avatar f tn Is there a possibility that I can take a throat test or will a pap test identify the chance of having Chlamydia infection in the throat? (I think it spreads from the throat to the uterus/rectum/pelvic)...
Avatar n tn If you did get it, blood testing would show that you had chlamydia, but it wouldn't tell you where it was. Throat swabs can find chlamydia, if they order that test done on it. From reading your other posts, you have had several tests done, and all were negative. I'm not sure why you are still worried about this.
Avatar n tn It is very rare at best, if it even happens. Chlamydia just doesn't thrive in the throat as it does in the genitals. If you've only had oral this one time, and never had sex, you really don't need to be tested for anything if you have no symptoms.
Avatar m tn the doctor gave me antibiotics already and i have a bad throat infection ... it's the only way i could get it ... because i was safe other than orally ...
Avatar m tn Hello, can you get chlamydia via unprotected oral and fully protected vaginal sex? The condom was 100% intact during vaginal intercourse.
Avatar f tn I tested for syphillis and HIV but did not get tested for chlamydia because I did not have any symptoms, discharge or pain. Now I am worry. What are the chances of getting chlamydia for a brief one time penetration and frottage?
Avatar n tn However, oral sex transmission is an exception -- relatively common for gonorrhea, rare for chlamydia. Chlamydia does not survive well in the mouth or throat, so that there is no chlamydia to transmit by performing oral sex. This information isn't new, but recent research has confirmed it. (CDC recommends against even testing for chlamydia of the throat. Testing is expensive and infection is rarely found, so not worth the effort.
Avatar m tn We did not had oral sex but she gave me hand job for one minute and her vagina was very wet, we had wet kisses. Two days later I had sore throat, still comes and go but no other symptoms such as discharge,itching orslowing. After three weeks I asked my doctor to scan general STD test. The tests the doctor conducted calls: THPA (TREPONEMA PALL. ABS) and PSA. All the result came negative except for chlamydia came positive my doctor told me not to be worried it is common disease can be treated.
Avatar n tn Well if you are 100% sure it is her, I think it is more likely that she had a chlamydia infection in her throat and transmitted it this way; although from what I understand, this is pretty rare. Considering that vaginal fluids are a mode of transmission for chlamydia, i would say that her actions made it more possible. Best of luck to you. I'm guessing you have sought treatment already?
Avatar m tn Hi most std experts agree that chlamydia cannot be passed from oral sex as is not known to infect the throat area but in regards to discharge, and infection is white puss and with this there would be burning while urinating or itching inside the urethra.
Avatar f tn I recently tested positive for chlamydia. I have been married 12 years and have never tested positive. My spouse denied cheating. I had the test repeated and it is positive. He has now admitted to cheating saying that he receive oral sex one-time approximately 14 months ago from a stripper. My questions- 1. Is it possible I could have this for over 14 months? I have read it usually clears up in a year. 2. He has stated that she "went up and down" two to three times.
Avatar n tn If you have it genitally, the antibiotic you get will cure it on the very off chance that you have it in your throat. Chlamydia rarely, if ever, infects the throat.
Avatar f tn The next day my throat was really sore. I was wondering if i could have possibly received Chlamydia in my throat and I was also wondering, if I did, can it spread to my vagina.
Avatar n tn I doubt they are testing for gonorrhea or chlamydia. Oral chlamydia is very rare, and while you might have a possiblity of having oral gonorrhea, its still not likely. Niether would have given your bf these symptoms.
Avatar m tn I've read some places that for chlamydia in the throat there is a different treatment than what used for chlamydia of the genetalia (longer or stronger, I'm not completely sure). The meds we got when we got treated were different. She got the single dose of azithromycin, and I got the 7 days of doxycyclin. This time around we both got doxycyclin. However, we are not so eager to be infected again and this is tearing on the relationship as we do not want to have sex until we know it's gone.
Avatar n tn Or is it 100x more likely he cheated, got something in his throat and passed it to my penis. Also, if it was just a regular type of infection, is there a chance that the labs would come back positive for an STD even though it wasnt? needless to say my medical care was somewhat subpar due to the circumstances. Thanks so much.
Avatar m tn Your prostate pain wouldn't be related to the throat pain, especially if nothing has been found on a throat culture. You might want to have a prostate exam done.
Avatar m tn (which makes anyone worried to be worried more...). From what i gather, between throat to throat infection is possible but rare... is my understanding correct? I sincerely thank any and all the comment.
Avatar f tn Syphillis gonereha but now i have weird body pains n Lump feeling in throat could i possibly get herpes or hiv from this encounter
Avatar n tn She had me scoped, and said that indeed my throat seemed swollen and that there was a lot of mucous in my throat. Also, the lymph tissue at the back of my throat was quite swollen (and continues to be) It seemed not to concern her - she indicated it could be allergies or a viral infection, or perhaps even acid reflux. Well, I was put on a PPI and it has had no results (2 weeks now). I wasn't expecting much because I have never had reactions to food and I don't really get heartburn.
Avatar f tn The rapid test is always negative for strep, but we just learned that chlamydia and gonorrhea can be present in the throat. Neither of us got throat swabbed to test for throat chlamydia and/or gonorrhea, but since the treatment is different for those (as they are more stubborn and harder to cure), now my partner is refusing to even kiss me until we do get throat swabbed. I understand that both are rare, but he's very insistent.
Avatar f tn it started before he got the antibiotic though, and before the MRSA throat infection was diagnosed. And this all started with what I thought was a virus. Do you think he should get a sputum culture, and is that even possible when he's not coughing? Thanks again for all your advice, you've been very helpful, which is very much appreciated.. it makes this a lot harder that he's in another country and I can't talk to the doctors there.
