cured of chlamydia vaginally, cured it in my butt as well?

User Profile
During one of my sexual encounters, the guy I was with slipped up and stuck his penis in my butt by accident. I ended up becoming infected vaginally with chlamydia and I had tested positive for herpes 1. I don't know if he was the one that infected me, but would I have also gotten it in my butt then as well if he was infected? I took doxycline for 7 days, 2 times a day and cured myself of chlamydia vaginally. Would that have cured it in my butt as well if I had become infected there?

Welcome to the forum and I am really glad to help you out.

Chlamydia is caused by bacteria that are usually spread through sexual contact. When someone get chlamydia infection in the rectum, the main symptoms are often discharge, pain, and bleeding from this area. Since you are not having any such symptoms,chances of Chlamydia infection of the rectum are very less.

The standard treatment of Chlamydia is either azithromycin or doxycycline which you have taken twice daily for 7 days. The antibiotic would have taken care of Chlamydia infection of the rectum as well if there was nay such infection.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
