Hi. Ive been in a monogamous relationship for a year and

Hi. I've been in a monogamous relationship for a year and a half now. A few months prior to us meeting, my current girlfriend (27 y/o, I'm 28) tested positive for chlamydia (a little less than 2 years ago) and went through a round of treatment with antibiotics. After that, and before we were sexually active, she was tested and came up clear. I went through a full STD screen at the same time and came up clear as well. She also was tested earlier this year and came up clean.A week and a half ago, I developed symptoms of epididymis and the test just came back as positive for chlamydia. For treatment they switched me from the Cipro originally prescribed last week to doxycycline.Question is, is it possible that the chlamydia was dormant in my girlfriend over the past couple of years (even with the negative tests), or that she passed it to me early in the relationship?

I had chlamydia for 3 to 10 months about 10years ago. I was treated with antibiotics and abstained from full intercoursefor about 2 weeks. Fast forward 10 years and I am having problems conceiving. I dont recall abnormsl abdominal pain and a pelvic ultrascan I had in relation to ibs showed nothing abnormal. What are the chances I have had tube damage through pid? the gp did nit know or ask about chlamydia before the scan and I was not trying to conceive then so didnt think to ask.

severe pain/ache deep inside my vagina..genitals..stimulated..my body

For the past couple of years I have been experience a severe pain/ache deep inside my vagina whenever I get turned on - the genitals don't even have to have been physically stimulated in any way ie: the pain can be there even when I just wake up from a sexual dream. It seems to come on whenever my body starts to get turned on. If sex continues it will eventually die down but it is getting more and more painful at the start. I would really like to know what is causing this?

chlamydia, my partner is waiting to get his appointment for testing

i have just been diagnosed with chlamydia, my partner is waiting to get his appointment for testing. the relationship is quite new and i was wondering if i have it what is the likelihood he has it, either from him giving it to me or vice versa? i am comfortable in telling him that we both need the treatment. however, because i got tested first i feel he may think its from me, which i know is not necessarily the case. i just feel it would be harder to deal with if his results came back negative

I am having a very watery clear with some bright red blood

Hello, I am having a very watery clear with some bright red blood mixed in with it. I am 46 and about a year and a half ago had surgery and removal of my left ovary , due to "out of the blue" softball sized cysts and uterine fibroids. This is a bit different for me and I have been bleeding for the past three weeks and now this in the last 24 hours. I am also very anemic and feeling a bit woozy from the flow from the last couple of weeks. It had been a couple of months since last somewhat regular period . I have not had any real regular periods since the surgery and issue . I am not sure if this is cause for concern right now and if I need to go to the doctor ?I am currently taking iron tabs 27 mg per day , magnesium, and vitamin c . That is all maybe a Tylenol or two but try to not take any if possible.Thank youJA: Are you in any pain? How regular are your periods?Customer: A little pain yes . Through lower pelvic area and back as well.JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?Customer: They did a biopsy prior to the surgery last Jan. 2015 . Had to have a blood transfusion. other than that the surgery and prior issue literally came out of nowhere. It was sudden and all took place over the course of three months. Prior to this was very healthy played sports, I am no longer as active but do walk and do yoga . Nothing like before because of a knee injury.
