Throat infection chlamydia

Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection chlamydia


Avatar m tn If you caught Chlamydia trachomatis infection in the throat, the infection would most likely be asymptomatic. There is no known consequence to chlamydial infection of the throat and if it occurred, it would almost certainly resolve even if untreated. The cells which chlamydia infections occur on, columnar epithelial cells are absent from the throat. thus, once again, even if you were one of those rare persons, there would be nothing to be concerned about.
Avatar m tn It started with pain in the lymph nodes and joints. The chlamydia infection gave me infection in the eyes and penis and a swelling of a lymph node like a ping-pong boll on my throat. When I received chlamydia medicine all chlamydia symptoms went away but I continued to have symptoms in my lymph nodes with pain but not swelling. The swelling of the lymph node that I had initially only lasted for like a day or so about 2 weeks after I got infected.
Avatar f tn 1) I know the chances of contracting chlamydia through oral sex is rare, but possible and the likelihood of the bacteria surviving in the mouth/throat is slim to none, BUT what are the chances she contracted the chlamydia infection in her throat? 2) Does a chlamydia infection of the throat stay localized if it survives or can it spread throughout the body (i.e. to the genitals)? 3) What are the chances of passing the infection from someones throat to genitals through oral sex?
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 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 f tn It stays at the point of infection.
Avatar m tn An oral infection is an oral infection. A genital infection is a genital infection. One does not result because of the other. It has to be transmitted to that particular area from direct exposure. Oral std's are tested the same way as tonsillitis or strep in a throat culture. No, an oral std would not show if tested by urine. And it is not that likely to get an std from oral sex in general. Possible, but with no specific time frame.
Avatar f tn Having said that, you should follow up with your doctor if you have not already done so about your previous chlamydia infection before engaging in vaginal sex with your boyfriend. Chlamydia is transmitted through unprotected vaginal sex!
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 f tn If a woman did in fact have Chlamydia of the throat, could it transfer to the vagina/cervix on it's own, being a bacterial infection?
Avatar f tn Hi most std experts advise that chlamydia cannot be transmitted to the throat and if it did, its extremely rare and i would suspect you had a false positive. How were you diagnosed with this in your throat? Testing for this is most effective with a swab and the NAAT test.
Avatar f tn And if so, could that cause infertility or any other incurable health problems? I believe my doctor said that if I had throat chlamydia or gonorrhea, it would show up in the test anyway, but I'm not sure if she actually said that. So I'm getting tested again soon just for routine. Should I request a throat swab too, or will it all be covered with a vaginal/cervical test?
Avatar f tn Signs of oral Chlamydia are sore throat and throat infection. Hard to say because unless you had a Std panel before and it was negative, you could have had it before and just now start showing signs of the infection...
Avatar m tn Hello, I just has a complete panel of STD tests recently and came back negative for HIV, Syphilis, Gonnorhea, and Chlamydia. However I tested positive for Herpes but will be getting checked again with a better test. However, 3 weeks after the sexual encounter which promoted me to get the tests I got a sore throat. It's just a little more uncomfortable to swallow, as if my uvula is slightly swollen but its not.
Avatar m tn 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 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 Chlamydia rarely infects the throat (in fact, some people believe it is not possible) but if you had a chlamydia throat infection then it would not be affecting your penis. IF it was in your throat, it would be sore and irritated. Your frequency of urination has nothing to do with the experience you mentioned.
Avatar n tn In our lab oral testing is just unsatisfactory and the biological make up of Chlamydia precludes oral infection. Now for testing. I don`t recommend blood serology testing for genital Chlamydia testing.It is a waste of time and money. Two good urine tests are available, best results are from first void early moring urine. A swab test from the penis is excelent if the GEN-probe test is used. Best to be seen by a health care professional. Self diagnosis and treatment are not a good idea.
Avatar m tn Welcome to the forum. I'm happy to help. Bottom line: It is exceedingly unlikely you have pharyngeal gonorrhea. First, it is statistically unlikely your partner had urethral gonorrhea. Not just because of his negative tests, but because urethral gonorrhea usually is not subtle -- asymptomatic infection is rare, and you probably would have seen pus dripping from his penis (in which case I doubt you would have performed oral sex on him!).
