A while ago, a patient thought he might have had chlamydia after doing research, so he went to his doctor. They examined a urine sample and it turns out that he had chlamydia.
...So now that I know I have chlamydia, how exactly do I get rid of it?
Don't worry, it's a very easy problem to fix.
Okay, that's good to hear. Tell me, what can I do?
Well, there are some antibiotics that can easily cure it
Like what kinds? When will it be gone? When do I ge-
Woah there, slow down! I can give you Doxycycline or Azithromycin, which are the most common treatments for Chlamydia. They both work great!
So when do I have to take them, and for how long?
I'm only going to give you the Doxycycline, which you'll have to take twice a day for one week.
Yes, just be sure to refrain from any sexual activity for the week you are on your antibiotics, just to prevent any spreading to anyone. Also, it's very important that you take all of the required Doxycycline to ensure that it will be completely gone.
Ok, I'll be sure to do that. And if it doesn't go away in a couple weeks, I should come and see you again?
Ok, thank you so much! I will take your advice. Goodbye!
Oh, yes, definitely. However, since we caught it early, it should go away quickly, about 7-10 days. But if it's still there, then come back.
Alright, that sounds fine. Is there anything else you'd like me to do or not do while I'm on these?
