From there, the infection may spread upward to the urethra (urine canal), the uterus (womb) and the Fallopian tubes (tubes that carry fertilized eggs from the ovaries to the uterus).
If the infection is left untreated, it can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).
All the results came out negative, except for the rectal test. At any rate, the clinic treated me with a one-time dose of antibiotics and wants me to come back and re-test within 3 weeks, providing that I avoid all sexual activity. When it comes to other infections though, since there was no unprotected intercourse, you should not worry. both chlamydia and gonorrhoea if diagnosed early, can be treated easily. I realize oral sex definitely carries risk, and I need to be more careful.
I'm just wondering how I could have tested positive for rectal chalmydia. I was just really surprised at the positive rectal chlamydia result, but after what you explained to me, it's definitely a possibly that the guy I was seeing could have touched my anus with his penis.
But others just don’t have vaginal or anal sex when they’re abstinent. However, if you decide you only want to abstain from penetrative sex, remember you could still catch STIs through oral sex.
I was tested specifically for chlamydia, gonorrhrea and syphlils. I would have felt more comfortable if the clinic had collected the sample from my rectum because I didn't think that I gave enough of a sample. Yes, since you never had anal sex in the past one year, you should have tested negative for chlamydia. To answer your question, I've never had any previous history of unprotected intercourse.
Last week, I went to the Gay and Lesbian Center in Los Angeles, Ca to get tested for HIV and STDs. It might also be worth noting, that I swabed my rectum to get the sample, and then placed the sample in a test tube solution and broke off the end of the swab before sealing the tube with the cap. Do you have any previous history of unprotected intercourse?
The acidity levels in the vagina even when returned to normal, cannot always combat a yeast infection.
The average yeast infection in women is due to too much moisture in the vaginal area causing yeast to multiply out of control.
