DIRECTIONS FOR TREATING A SUSPECTED CHLAMYDIA INFECTION
We recently treated your sex partner for chlamydia. It is a curable bacterial infection you can get from having sex with a person who has it. You are probably infected, too. Many people who have chlamydia do not know they have it. They often have no symptoms and feel fine. Others may feel pain. It can be in their pelvis, testicles, vulva, or vagina. It can also happen when they urinate or have sex. Unless it’s treated, chlamydia can cause sterility and painful arthritis — even when there are no symptoms. You should be treated to
Prevent complications for yourself. Avoid spreading the infection back to your partner. Avoid infecting others.
We offer you this medicine because it is very likely that you are infected. But we have
no proof. Call us at ________________ if you want an examination and testing to find
out if you are infected. You may also have a sexually transmitted infection (STI) that is
different from the one we treated your partner for. The only way to be sure is to have a
physical examination and be tested, here or somewhere else.
Your partner has brought you the medicine or a prescription for the medicine. You can
fill the prescription at a pharmacy. Take the medicine as soon as possible if you are not
able to have an examination within one week. Please read the following before you take the medicine:
