I've recently learned that I have been exposed to chlamydia.

I've recently learned that I have been exposed to chlamydia. While at the walk-in clinic to obtain a urine test, the physician told me that because I have a Mirena IUD I will need to have the IUD removed and undergo a much longer treatment than someone without an IUD if I were to receive positive test results. After much pleading on my part she did give me 4 pills to take all at once.I had a previously scheduled gyno appointment the following day, during that visit he told me that my cervix looked very healthy. He also gave me a script for a new IUD as my period had returned after 2.5 years and lasted for 27 days. I forgot to ask about chlamydia and IUD removal.Today I have found out that I did test positive. My question is this, is the walk in clinic doctor correct when she says that I must have the Mirena removed before beginning treatment and that it will take much longer for me to be treated? This just seems like very dated information.

I was seeing if you could help me out on answering some questions

I was seeing if you could help me out on answering some questions about chlamydia infection and transmition?JA: OK. The Doctor will need to help you with this. Please give me a bit more information, so the Doctor can help you best.Customer: I originally was diagnosed with chlamydia due to PID symptoms in September. I was tested a month later after treatment and it came back negative. I have been in a monogamous relationship since November . A few weeks ago I tested positive again for chlamydia. But my partner tested negative. Is it possible that he had a false negative or I had a false positive? Is it possible that I was not fully treated their first time? Is it possible that someone could carry it for six months without giving it to their partner? If I was truly fully treated the first time is it possible for it to come back months later due to high stress? Thank you for your help .JA: Anything else I can tell the Doctor before I connect you two?Customer: No thank youJA: I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Doctor about your situation and connect you two.

I am 40 year old woman. first time i missed a

Hi,I am 40 year old woman. For the first time i missed a period (zero chance of pregnancy) but then when it did arrive a month later, I have been bleeding for 10days, the last 8 of them relatively heavily. My typical cycle is 4 days and like clockwork. I do not take birth control, or any other medication. How concerned should I be? i am travelling for 6 weeks in 2 weeks time I have an appt for exam mid june but want to know if there is urgency for me to see a doctor. I cant remember when my last pelvic exam was, maybe 4/5 yrs ago. Thanks.

I had a vaginal delivery on July 28th.Two weeks later I was

I had a vaginal delivery on July 28th.Two weeks later I was in E.R. and diagnosed with retained products of conception.I was given pills to try and release the products naturally and that did not work and I had a D&C a week later.I was in the E.R again 3 weeks later with serious abdominal pain. I felt pain and pressure in my bladder, ovaries and vaginal walls. Pain was so severe I could not walk. MRI, Ultrasounds and labs where done and only revealed small cyst and some fluid in my lower abdomen. Drs assumed it was my appendix and it was removed.Pain and discomfort continued after that procedure and I went to another hospital a few weeks later. I was observed and given the diagnosis of hemorrhagic cyst.I never had medical issues prior to my pregnancy.Pain in abdomen and pressure has been consistent along with pain in my right ovary for months now. (my son is 8 months old) Less severe now than it was in the beginning. Could the hemorrhagic cyst diagnosis been incorrect? To my understanding that pain isnt supposed to be chronic. What are possible reasons for the pain Im in.I did not have a period until 6 months post partum even though I wasnt breastfeeding which led me to suspect ashermans syndrome.
