Can my partner reinfect with with chlamydia after treatment?

Posted , 3 users are following.

My partner didnt get checked before we got together and it turns out he had chlamydia and gave it to me. We realised after a month because i showed symptoms and got tested. I was treated and told to wait 2 weeks, he was treates 4 days later and was told to wait 1 week by a different clinic. A week after my treatment we began doing forplay, with only our hands and washed after, being careful we did not get anything near our mouth or genitals. I got tested 2 weeks after my medication and was clear. He did not get asked back for re-testing and we had sex on the 7th day after his medication. Ive gone back to the doctors with symptoms again and have been re-infecfted by him. I trust him completely but my doctors insistence has made me a little concerned. Is it possible that his infection just never cleared up and thats how i got it again? Or maybe we didnt wait long enough? Thanks.

    I was having some similar issues with trich.

    Only my dude got it from his little hoe of his .. it's like a little triangle that's why I refuse to have unprotected sex with him anymore .

    It's like Russian roulette .

    You guys both might have to re do the anti biotics all over again .

    What did the doctors say ??

      Hey, sorry to hear! Weve both been given the anitbiotics again and told not to do anything for two weeks. And to wait 5 weeks to be retested as any sooner you can get a false positive. Apparently the single dose they give you doesnt always work first time around
