When to Seek Medical Care

When to call the doctor

  • Fever
  • abdominal pain
  • Discharge from the penis or vagina
  • Pain with urination
  • Frequent trips to the bathroom to urinate

Sexual contact with an infected person: Most often, a sexual partner is informed about a chlamydial infection, and this is the first indication of the presence of the disease . All partners of an infected person should be treated to prevent the spread of the infection back and forth.

When to go to the hospital

Chlamydial infections can develop into serious medical conditions if not treated.

Women: Pelvic inflammatory disease is a serious medical condition, which can lead to sterility. Fever , abdominal pain, and vagina discharge can be symptoms of this disease.. Women with these symptoms need to go to a hospital's emergency department immediately for treatment.

Men: Fever , discharge from the penis, and painful urination may signal an infection, which may involve inflammation of the testicles. Men with these symptoms need to go to a hospital's emergency department immediately for treatment.


Finish the entire course of antibiotics your doctor prescribes, even if you're feeling fine and symptoms go away.

Notify any and all sexual partners of infection. They should be treated or tested so the infection is not passed back and forth.

Be retested if your symptoms continue or you think you have been reinfected. Having the infection once does not confer immunity to repeat infection.

Use latex condoms during sexual intercourse


Use latex condoms when having sexual intercourse.

Avoid sexual contact with high-risk partners.

Treat infected sexual partners or have them tested before having sexual relations. Up to one-fourth of sexual partners will be reinfected because the partner wasn't treated.
