Throat infection chlamydia

Common Questions and Answers about Throat infection chlamydia


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 Women are more likely to experience few symptoms associated with the infection although chlamydia in men can also result in few or no symptoms. Signs of chlamydia usually appear between 1 and 3 weeks after infection, though sometimes they can take longer to manifest. Early chlamydia signs and symptoms tend to be mild and include pain during urination, frequent urination, and low fever.
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 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 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 f tn It stays at the point of infection.
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 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 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 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 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 n tn It remains in the throat, but otal chlamydia is very very rare if at all possible.
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 n tn I have been tested for HIV, herpes, syphillis and for gonorrhea and chlamydia via urine. My concern is that I was never swabbed in my throat for gonorrhea or chlamydia. My questions are: 1. Should I be concerned about this one time encounter that I contracted either gonorrhea or chlamydia? 2. If I did contract either, would my body have cured it on its own, or is it possible that I could still have the infection? 3.
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 m tn For the last two weeks of February, I was taking Levaquin for an infection in my throat after a minor biopsy. About a week after starting the Levaquin, I had unprotected, receptive anal sex with my boyfriend. (For the record, I've only had receptive anal sex with two guys in the last 10 years - the current boyfriend and the previous boyfriend; I went for hiv testing with them both first).
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 m tn The other causes needed to be ruled out are airway malacia, laryngotracheobronchitis and infection with Chlamydia trachomatis. If there is presence of sputum with cough then we can suspect the infection. You need to undergo certain tests like allergen test, spirometry, and serological test for Chlamydia. Treatment includes cough suppressants, a trial therapy with bronchodilators, avoiding triggering factors.
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 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 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?
