Patient Comments: Chlamydia In Women - Symptoms

What were the symptoms of your Chlamydia?

A Doctor's View on Chlamydia Symptoms

Read the Comment by Melissa Conrad Stöppler, MD

Chlamydia causes either no symptoms (“silent infection”) or symptoms like pain, discharge, and burning with urination. Untreated, chlamydia in women may lead to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which causes symptoms like fever, chills, pain, nausea, vomiting, and pain with intercourse.

I was diagnosed last week with chlamydia. It has been a year since my last std test and that one came back all negative. I don't know when I got it or who I I got it from. I've never had symptoms except after I was diagnosed I realized I did have more discharge than usual and I was always very moist between my vagina and anus. I know think these were definitely signs of the infection I just didn't realize it. I hope it's cleared up as I just finished my last day of antibiotics. I have to wait six weeks to go back and get rescreened. I hope that helps, biggest lesson is to absolutely get tested as much as possible. It's better to find out now and fix it.

I had no symptoms and no idea of how long I had chlamydia until I was pregnant and started going to an OBGYN. This was after six years of being with my first and only sexual partner, now ex-husband. Girls please go for regular screenings, it's smarter and safer to check your own health regularly.

One day I just decided to get tested after a little over a year of being sexually active. I didn't have any symptoms but I contracted chlamydia from the first guy I ever had sex with and I felt disgusting and ashamed. I felt like I should've been more careful. Ladies look after yourselves!

About 5 months ago I got out of a long term relationship (4 years), and recently (a few weeks ago) slept with a guy that took me home from the bar. Well, after hanging out with him for a week or two I got pretty suspicious. He spoke about slutty girls and prostitutes (asking if I thought there was any in town). I got really nervous (no condom was used) and went and got a pap test done right away. At that point I had no symptoms, but today I'm really feeling it. The pain reminds me slightly of period cramps with a little burning. I've always had discharge but recently it had turned slightly yellow and has a kind of odd musky odor. Chlamydia confirmed. I got the results today, I've never had an STD and I feel disgusting, gross, gross, gross, gross. Stupid me. I have learned my lesson. Long live condoms. If you're ever suspicious, get tested.

I now have chlamydia and I am going to get it treated Monday (2 days from now). I got it by trusting a guy that really talked me out of using a condom. A couple weeks later me and an ex got back together and I gave it to him (before I knew I had it). I have terrible lower back pain and abdominal pain that keep me up at night. The burning sensation I have when I urinate makes me cry. I will never get this again. My boyfriend and I are both getting cured and he says no matter what he'll never leave me. Even though I gave him an STD he knows I didn't mean it. That's real love.

I was diagnosed with chlamydia yesterday and I'm on antibiotic. I also have a urinary tract infection (UTI). I'm feeling extremely nauseous and light headed.

I have recently been diagnosed with chlamydia/gonorrhea and I also have herpes. I"ve only had 3 partners in my entire life, and I know exactly when I got the herpes, but as for the rest, I"m still a little puzzled. My (current) boyfriend, the one who gave it to me unknowingly, is showing zero symptoms, but I am the lucky one showing every symptom under the sun. Tomorrow is my last day to take my antibiotics but there are no signs of improvement. I have another doctor's appointment on Friday, so hopefully I can either find answers or get more medications. I can deal with the little itchy bumps, but the "painful" urination is an understatement. Protection is key.
