I think I have perhaps caught chlamydia , after having unprotected

Resolved Question:

I think I have perhaps caught chlamydia , after having unprotected sex a week later I start getting a yellowish vaginal discharge and lower abdominal pain and I have just experience bleeding during sex. I have been to my gp who has taken swabs but they also requested a urine sample last Friday I did go past my gp surgery on Thursday but the results weren't back, I have never had an sti before and would certainly never want to have again I have already purchased non latex condoms as I am allergic to latex and if I do have an sti that will be a sure warning never to go unprotected ever again its quite scary not knowing whats happening to your body.

when my gp gets the results I suppose I just asked weather on not for definite that u thought I had something or not

Expert:  TheGermDoctor replied 1 year ago.

Well it certainly sounds suspicious you may have something- possibilities include chlamydia> gonorrhea, but also would consider mycoplasma, ureaplasma, and trichomonas. Results come back a lot faster than 2 weeks - so I would recommend you call your physician and obtain the results.

As for reassurance- these conditions are all treatable. But you need to have a diagnosis and get on the right antibiotics- and of course treat any partners .

I am not sure if you have other specific questions you are asking but please let me know If this does answer your question then please press a rating that shows your question has been answered
