Dealing with Chlamydia

Dealing with Chlamydia

Sexually transmitted diseases are not only potentially very serious, but they are almost always embarrassing. So when I found out that I had Chlamydia, I was mostly embarrassed even though I knew that like any other disease, I had nothing to be ashamed of.

However, when my gynecologist told me that I should probably get in touch with all my previous partners and tell them to get tested, the only thing I felt was shame. I immediately remembered the episode of Sex and the city where Miranda was in the same situation. Needless to say, I love, love, love the show and I always secretly wished that I lived the same life. Of course, I was a single woman in my thirties, so I kind of had that kind of life style, only without all the money they had and without all the glamour. And when I imagined myself in the situations those women found themselves in, I have to admit that I never imagined finding myself in such an embarrassing situation.

Fortunately, there were no symptoms that made me feel miserable, but since Chlamydia can lead to sterility, I was a bit afraid and eager to get it out of my system. My gyno prescribed Zithromax and as I already said, she told me to contact all my exes to let them know that they may have the same thing. And this was literally a nightmare.

Although I never had so many partners, there were a few. The problem was that we didn’t really stay in touch and we ended on bad terms. Of course, since I never wanted to hear from them again, I guess that that was how they felt as well. After making all those dreadful phone calls, I felt relived. I was done. All I had to do was to get rid of Chlamydia and I could start over.

I took Zithromax and I made sure that I did everything as told. I took it when I was supposed to and in the end, when I went to see my gyno, I was given a clean bill of health. Chlamydia was gone.

All in all, Zithromax did successfully deal with Chlamydia and I am extremely happy for having dealt with the situation so easily and quickly. Another medication may not have helped me so much. Of course, I cannot say that for sure, but there is always a chance. A friend of mine had Chlamydia as well and she didn’t manage to deal with it so quickly and my guess is that it was because she didn’t use the right medication. Fortunately, I did.  I only wish that there was something that could have helped me deal with the shame I experienced during those phone calls.
