My Personal Health Checklist – following treatment.
If you have received treatment for Chlamydia following a Positive test result , it is important to remain free of infection and do everything you can to stay safe and protected.
Please use this personal checklist to help you feel sure that treatment has been successful and you have followed all of the guidance and advice given to you at the time of your treatment.
- I have taken my medication correctly
(if you have vomited within 2 hours of your dose it is unlikely that your antibiotics will work effectively - so you may need more treatment. Please contact us to discuss this )
- I am sure my current partner has received treatment
(if your partner is untreated you are at high risk of re-infection, it is important your partner receives treatment too or you cant be sure of your own health. We can usually arrange this if you get in touch)
- I have told recent past partner(s)
(if you don't feel you want to do this you can ask our clinic staff to do this for you and we can keep your details anonymous. It's the right thing to do as they may not know they are at risk and could be passing the infection onto others)
- I am happy that I am no longer at risk of infection
(we hope you followed the advice we gave you, but if sexual contact has happened within 7 days of yours or your partners' treatment, you could still be at risk)
- I feel I know more about how I can prevent future STI’s and where and how I can access free condoms to help protect me.
