Customer Question

My boyfriend tested positive for Chlamidia. My test came back negative. We have been together and sexually active on and off for 2 1/2 years. He claims that he has only had unprotected sex with me and his ex wife in the last 7 years. (But she had an affair at the end of their marriage.) How is it possible I didn't contract it?
JA: Is this your first time reaching out for information about this? In general, how would you describe your overall health?
Customer: Excellent
JA: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: No. Not that I can think of. I was treated for a UTI within the last year and used antibiotics.

Hello ,

Well it sounds possible that your UTI antibiotic might have suppressed or treated you If you too as expected had chlamydia ..

We prefer to have partners receive simulataneous treatment such as 2.0 gram azithromycin to help prevent chance that you could pass it back and forth ...

( possible inadequate specimen from you to give a false negative perhaps ??)

The simultaneous treatment is my approach to this problem though

I hope this is helpful for you

Let me know If you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you

Best regards,
