Sexually Transmitted Infections
Chlamydia or yeast
Posted on: 12/18/2007
After ending a 2-year relationship with my boyfriend, I was told I had chlamydia. I have not ben sexually active with anyone since April and I was diagnosed in October. My ex was the only person I had unprotected sex with. I receieved treatment and about a week after I noticed that I began having some itching and discharge. Is it possible that it came back or could the medicine have gave me a yeast infection?
I am sorry about the relationship ending and that you had chlamydia. It is important that the ex gets treated, too. The only way to know whether it did not clear or this is yeast is to see your doctor again. Good luck!
