Treatment for the Most Common STI

STIIt’s an embarrassing topic, but there is really nothing to be embarrassed about, considering over that 200,000 people tested positive for the illness in 2012. Of those 200,000, 64% of them were under the age of 25. The illness discussed in this article is chlamydia. It’s a sexually transmitted disease that can be symptomless, which is why it’s important you order a testing kit in order to determine if you have it. Once you know you have the illness, you can easily order treatment online, too!

Due to the sensitive nature of discussing this illness with others, it’s nice to be able to diagnose and treat this illness without having to leave the comfort of your home. Take a look at how the at-home diagnosis kit and treatments work!

Diagnosis Kit

If you have not been diagnosed by a doctor, you don’t have to worry about going to a clinic or to your primary caregiver in order to obtain a confirmation of your illness. If you have the following symptoms and you are a man, then you should order a testing kit.

  • You have a discharge from your genitals.
  • You have a burning sensation when you urinate.
  • You have swelling of the scrotum.
  • You have painful joints.

If you are a woman and you have the following symptoms, then you should order a test kit or see a caregiver.

  • Abnormal discharge.
  • Bleeding between menstruations.
  • Burning sensation while urinating.
  • Lower abdominal pain, discharge, and fever that can be attributed to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease.
  • Painful joints.

All of these can be symptoms of the illness. However, the illness can be present for either man or woman without having any symptoms.

The diagnosis kit is easily ordered and instructions are easy to follow. The kit is then sent to a lab where a confirmation of the illness is made. Once the confirmation is received, antibiotics for chlamydia can be ordered.

Treatment Options

With an online pharmacy, it’s pretty simple to order two different forms of antibiotics.

The first type is Azithromycin, which is the most commonly used antibiotic. It’s an oral dosage and directions will be given to you once you order the medication. It kills the bacteria that is responsible for chlamydia and is very effective. If you are under the age of 25, it is recommended you have a follow-up test a month after you’ve been treated.

The second type of antibiotic is Doxycycline. This antibiotic can be used if you are allergic to the first treatment option or the first treatment option doesn’t appear to be working for you. It is also an oral dose and directions are provided once you’ve ordered. It works the same way, and it is also recommended you receive a follow-up test kit to be sure you are free of the illness.

Chlamydia is a common illness, especially amongst those who are under the age of 25. To prevent future outbreaks, you should practice safe sex. However, if you do contract the illness, there are private options that allow you to remain discreet about the illness.
