Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.

Chlamydia will not "come back" if it was eradicated and the individual has not had sex again. However, it is possible that the antibiotics were not effective at completely eradicating the chlamydia. If the chlamydia is mostly killed, but not completely killed, then the residual chlamydia may remain dormant for quite some time before it may start causing symptoms again. Our current antibiotic treatment for chlamydia is quite effective, but it does not work 100% of the time. From the perspective of the individual, it may seem like it is gone and "comes back", but the reality is that some of the germ never left.

When someone gets recurrent symptoms a year later, it is more often that we see someone get infected again, but that would require that the individual be sexually active to acquire the germ again.

If I can provide any additional information, please let me know.

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.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
