hi. my boyfriend/fiance has recently infected me with chlamydia. I would say about 1 week ago. What else should I test for?I am worried sick. I was thinking to test for Hepatitis and HIV. Whats your advice?
Response from Mr. Kull
Dual infection with gonorrhea and chlamydia is common, but standard treatments for chlamydia should cure both infections. Chlamydia and gonorrhea infections increase a persons risk for HIV infection when exposed to the virus, so HIV screening is also indicated.
If you have not been vaccinated against hepatitis B, speak with your doctor about doing so.
