Patient Comments: Chlamydia In Women - Symptoms

What were the symptoms of your Chlamydia?

Comment from: lalalooza, 19-24 Female (Patient) Published: November 26

After several emergency room visits for lower back pain (felt like kidney pain) and pelvic pain, I was given a pelvic exam. I received a call saying I tested positive for chlamydia. I assume that I've had this infection since the beginning of July. I hadn't had any symptoms at first until now.

I was really sick before I tested positive for chlamydia. I had vomiting, lower back pain, headaches, pelvic pain, and was sweating.

I had UTI (urinal tract infection) then my partner of over 10 months got epididymitis and got an STD test. Turns out we have chlamydia and he got it off me and I honestly do not know where I got it from but all I can think about is all of those other girls that are getting without knowing. I've had mine for over 11 and a half months. A long time to have it without knowing going to the doctors to get help today.

I actually had no symptoms whatsoever. I requested to have an STD test at my regular gynecologist appointment since I've had a fair number of partners. I don't know who I got it from or when I got it. Just shows how important it is to get tested even if you suspect nothing's wrong. You never think it'll happen to you.

I was with this guy who is now my ex-boyfriend. Him and I been together for a year in a half. We had sex a few times and on the third time we had sex, I had pelvic pain, unusual vaginal discharge that had a weird smell, and lower back pain. I called my OB/GYN doctor and had some test done. While my boyfriend and I were chilling out at my house my boyfriend told me he's slept with several other women behind my back. Then my doctor called and told me I was positive. He prescribed me medication for a week and it went away. Words of advice, always get checked, use safe sex, and don't trust anyone but your OB/GYN and yourself.

I just found out yesterday that I have chlamydia and have had it for almost 9 months. I know exactly when I got it, and went to the doctor the next day only to be told I had a UTI. I didn't get any other pain or any symptoms, except I noticed my discharge smelt different. Sadly the doctor didn't catch these hints and my new boyfriend got it from me.

I have been married for 1 year and 6 months, and have been with the same man for going on 4 years now. Recently we were separated and I stayed "single" while I have doubts about my husband because I caught him with several girls but he swears they did not have sex. For the past two days I have had vaginal itching and some lower stomach pains. I don't know if this is caused by an std or not but if it is an std I will be VERY upset. I have had Chlamydia before and all I remember from it was I had horrible lower stomach pain.

I just found out that I had chlyamdia today. I was with someone for a year and a half, and then we broke up. We were still seeing each other and were still sleeping together for about a month after we broke up. I began seeing someone new and we had protected sex, thank god. I got the call today and found out that I've had chlyamadia for a very long time now. My symptoms were severe, I had horrible abdominal pain, pelvic pain, even lower back pain. I had abnormal bleeding that lasted 2 weeks and it was extremely heavy, I knew that something was wrong because I am on birth control and my periods are very light, and the bleeding was a week before I was due for my period. ALWAYS use a condom...I know that I will never be so irresponsible. I feel dirty...Even though I got this from my ex. It makes you feel like less than a woman. Girls, always always take care of yourself.
