Chlamydia - Doxycycline Success Rates & Re-Testing

AnxietyWars profile image

Hey everyone.

New here but just a severely anxious individual!

I was seeing a guy back in 2021 and he assured me that he was clean, I naively believed him. A few months after I stopped seeing him due to DV, I tested just in case. It came back positive. It was the first time that I had ever had an STI and it just shook me. I was prescribed Doxy and did another test 6 weeks later and it was all clear.

Since then I have just been so so anxious about catching it again. Fastforward to March this year and I started seeing someone new. I told him I wouldn't be intimate with him until he proves that he has the all clear. He was tested and was negative, as was I. I thought I was safe.

While I was seeing him I decided to do another test (as I say, I was anxious as hell after the first experience and decided to be on the side of caution and get tested after every new partner). The test came back with me being positive for Chlamydia. I confronted him and he tried telling me tha I had some sort of dormant strain of it brought on by stress. To which I told him was absolutely aubsurd. Anyway, took him months to acutally admit he slept around and this girl he had seen tested positve. Mystery of the airborne, stress-induced clap solved. Horah.

Anyway, I took the weeks-course of Doxy again. All the symptoms I had went away during this course. I am currently waiting for my results after re-testing 6 weeks later and I am honestly sleepless from stress. I am so worried that I am just going to be positive again even though I haven't had unprotected sex since, and I know this is just anxiety talking.

What are the chances of the treatment not working?

I don’t know the answer. But best wishes.

Extremely unlikely chlamydia treat will fail as there are not the same issues with resistance as gonhorroea has.
