Chlamydia ?

I went to have sex with a night girl over three months ago. 12 days later, I had discharge, burn while urination, itched urethra. I went to get the test, Dr said I had chlamydia infection and she gave me some antibiotic to finish within 14 days. After finished medicine, I went to retest again, and the doctor said the Chlamydia has gone. However, there are some symptoms such as bad smell after a long day, a bit redness in the end of my penis, some thick fluid in the end of my penis. The Dr said this is normal. The symptom will stay with me for long time. Is that true?, I personally think that if the chlamydia has gone, my penis should be normal, right? or there is other diseases which have the symptoms like I mentioned earlier?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us with your concerns.

Chlamydial urethritis in men is an infection of the urethra caused by the sexually transmitted disease (STD) chlamydia. The urethra carries urine from the bladder, through the penis, to the outside of the body.

This condition often causes swelling and inflammation of the urethra, accompanied by penile discharge.

Symptoms of chlamydia and the related inflammation of the urethra usually occur between one and three weeks after exposure to Chlamydia trachomatis.

Symptoms include:
pain or burning during urination
itching, redness, or swelling of the head of the penis or urethral opening
discharge from the penis, which is usually yellowish or beige
painful, swollen testicles

Symptoms of chlamydial urethritis in men can mimic the symptoms of gonorrhea. Gonorrhea and chlamydia infections often occur at the same time, and infected persons may require treatment for both STDs.

Most infections will resolve within a week or two. It’s important that you abstain from sexual activity for at least seven days after completing a course of antibiotics to prevent reinfection.

Anonymous, if you continue to have symptoms beyond two weeks, please contact your physician again.
