No

Thank you for that information. Apologies for not first introducing myself, my name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you.
In that case, the chlamydia is no longer in your body. Much like any other infection, for instance, strep throat, once you take the antibiotics the bacteria is eradicated and gone from your body. Can I help with any other questions?

how long does symptoms last
Doctor: Richard Han, Board Certified MD replied 3 months ago
Symptoms due to the inflammation that was caused by the chlamydia can linger for about 7-10 days, but generally diminish by day 5 and continue to reduce day by day until gone. Any other questions?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
