Posted , 6 users are following.

Hello. My chlamydia swab has back positive again after 2 courses of one off treatment. I don't want to take antibiotics any more as they didn't help at all. Even after the antibiotics treatment I got white coated tongue. Is there any other way of treatment?

    This is a bacterial infection which is treated with antibiotics. This is the medical treatment for the disease but it needs time for the antibiotics to work. If you don't persist with the treatment it will get worse. It is not a trivial infection. Be patient and discuss your concern with your doctor. I wouldn't be surprised if there aren't quack cures to be found on the Internet. Stick with the medicine.

    I know there is a drug resistant strain out there and it makes me wonder if that is what you have.

    Are you having sex w someone during this time? It makes me wonder if you are possibly reinfecting yourself from a partner that has it too, as a possibility?

      Hello. Thanks for your reply. I have been on one off treatment twice. Unfortunately didn't work. I got a white coated tongue and my stomach got worst. I had protected sex once after the second treatment. I have a vibrator which I been using once a week. Is it possible to been reinfected from it? If yes how I can disinfect it? Do you recommend to go for another one off treatment or go to holistic treatment? Thank you in advance!

    Hi,

    Chlamydia is treated with antibiotics, a one dose treatment is available but is not as effective as taking a course of medication such as Doxycycline or Erythromycin. It is important to take the full course, refrain from alcohol whilst on medication and NOT resume any sexual activity, including oral sex, until you have had the all clear. Your sexual partners must also been seen and receive treatment prior to resuming sex.

    If you have not attended a Dept of Genito-urinary medicine (GUM Clinic) but seen your GP I strongly advise to make an appointment at your local clinic. Chlamydia does not come back on its own and if left untreated could seriously impact on your future sexual health including infertility.

      Hi elian,

      Firstly "bedroom toys" should be washed and dried before you put them away, don't use strong chemicals, soap and water is enough.

      There is NO holistic treatment for Chlamydia, it is a sexually transmitted disease that requires specific antibiotics to cure it so there will be one suitable for you.

      Please make an appt at a GUM clinic, they are totally confidential, you do not need to attend your local one and can go to any in the country, treatment is free. If you want to see a female doctor ask at the time of making your appt. The staff will treat you with respect, explain everything and give you time to ask questions. Remember to tell them about the problems you had with the previous treatment (do you remember what it was called?)

      Don't hesitate to ask any other issues that worry you, I will try to help you. Dot x
