Unhappy Please help me with chlamydia

I have had chlamydia for the past 6 months now and I've had it before, almost a year ago. I am not working nor have I been able to find work, so receiving even the reduced price for treatment and medication at Planned Parenthood has been a challenge. Also, I am much too embarassed to tell my parents, so asking them for help is out of the question. However, recently I found six individually packaged tablets of Azithromycin in our medicine cabinet, each 250 mg. They were under my mother's name and had been sitting in there for about a week. This was strange I thought, because my mother is not one to forget to take her medication. Lower abdominal pain has been great, many cases of diarrhea and shortness of breath, foul smelling and thick greenish discharge, trouble sleeping and constant thoughs of never being able to conceive children run through my mind. So, out of desperation, I took all of the medication about five minutes ago. My question is: Is 250mg X 6(1500mg) enough to treat such a pro-longed infection?

Re: Please help me with chlamydia

I had Claymida, had to take Cipro and Doxy for 6 weeks, if you take the wrong meds it might not treat it, and trust me, the sooner you get treated the better, claymida can cause inferlity if you leave it to long. How much do the meds cost? I live in the UK so I got them for free, so I dont know what the prices are...

Re: Please help me with chlamydia

You really need to get to the doctor and have her take a look. You might not have what you think you have and also you really might be affecting your long term reproductive health. You don't say how old you are, if still in school go see the nurse. Planned parenthood is the next best choice and they will help I think even if you can't pay. Really, get yourself checked out asap and get well. If I were your Mom I would want you to come to me and let me know you have a medical issue that needs to be tended to asap. I hope you get help soon. I think chlamydia is contagious???
