Question: I threw up about 2 hours after I got an antibiotic and shot for chlamydia and gonorrhea. Do I need to take the shot and pills again or am I good?
Answer: Antibiotics can take up to two hours to be absorbed in your system.
Please call to confirm your results for both chlamydia and gonorrhea Painesville (440-352-0608) or Ashtabula (440-992-5953). If the test results were positive, please get retested in 30 days to ensure the treatment worked and you are now negative of both infections. In order to minimize future risk for yourself and future partners, please continue to practice safer sex with consistent condom use and STI/HIV testing every 90 days.
“If Im sure I have chlamydia, do I still need to be tested in order to receive antibiotics to treat it? I’m displaying all of the symptoms and my recent ex girlfriend came back positive for it.”
A: “You would need to bring a copy of your ex girlfriends positive test result with you to your appointment in order to receive treatment. If you cannot get a copy of this document you will be tested at your appointment.”
“I’m 16 and I have been diagnosed with chlamydia. I got pills and took them but then had unprotected sex and may have got it again. I was wondering if I could come get tested and get more pills there? also, what days and times could I get checked out.”
A: Here at Family Planning we do provide STI testing as well as treatment. If you are having symptoms, we recommend calling us to make an appointment at 440-352-0608.
