Patient Comments: Chlamydia In Women - Symptoms

What were the symptoms of your Chlamydia?

Comment from: SexyRockstar, Female Published: December 06

When I had Chlamydia, I'm still not sure how long I had it, but I was realizing that I was discharging and it had a weird stench to it so that's when I got checked and found out that, that's one of the symptoms, but that could also be a symptom for a Vaginal Bacterial Disease which is also curable. Good Luck.

There was a time when I didn't have my period for about three months, pain in my lower abs, pressure feel like in my vagina. My now ex-bf who I was with over a year and a half, told me he was bisexual. At first I didn't think anything of it, until I went to the emergency room, and the OBGYM took several tests. A few weeks later she called. I went in and that's when I was told I had Chlamydia. It sucks, yes and hurt like hell because I felt like I was dirty, that I should have been more careful. It took me such a long time to trust my current partner to even go down that road.

When I was 28, I was diagnosed with chlamydia. I was starting a new relationship and wanted to make sure everything was okay. Believe it or not getting tested was not easy as specialized clinics for STD's were not easily accessible in my area. Well, it came back positive and it took a while (3 weeks of antibiotics) to get rid of the symptoms. My partner took it well, and he also got his share of pills. It actually brought us closer together. I am no longer with this guy, but if I learned one thing, it's the importance of getting tested regularly, especially if you are sexually active. Do it for you, for your health, and most of all, expect the same from your partners.

I have been with my boyfriend on an off for about two years. I have done things with other people when we weren't together, but just recently I have been itchy and having almost no discharge. And it's thicker than usual. Usually I have quite a bit down there, and now it burns when I pee and I have always had back pain so I'm not sure what I have.

My boyfriend called me today after he had been tested and found out he has chlamydia. I am very confused because last month I was tested and it came back negative. Apparently there was no infidelity and I believe that. Is it possible that it has just been dormant and not shown up yet? We have been having unprotected sex (with the pull out method) since late July of this year. He had never been tested before (I didn't know this. Shame on me.) Luckily I called my gyno and she is sending a prescription for the treatment in.

I just got a call from my doctor saying I have chlamydia and bacterial vaginosis. I have had no symptoms except for a different smelling discharge but thought nothing of it. I am scared to take the pills for it because of the side effects. I would have never known I had it. I get some lower back pain sometimes but seriously, just go get checked.

Yesterday night I find out I have Chlamydia. I have no idea that I had it. I was having pain in low the stomach. I was sex free for about 4 months. The guy I was with wasn't my boyfriend. I ask if he had any STD. He said no. I don't even want to have sex anymore.

The symptoms that I noticed were a very sharp pain when I would use the bathroom, and a very mild but unusual soreness during sex. I get kidney stones, too, so when I felt the pain during urination I didn't even consider it a sign of an STD. I didn't even know it was a possibility until my partner suggested I should get tested because he felt like he had something. I had apparently got it from him and after being treated, he promises to be monogamous and we began having sex again. It has been a year and five months and now I think I have it again. I'm cramping for no reason and it burns when I urinate. If I have this again, he's out the door!
