Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection (STD or STI). It is one of the most common STIs in the United States with about 2-4 million cases annually, and it is often asymptomatic in many people — meaning the infected patient doesn’t exhibit symptoms. Men and women who are sexually active are at risk of chlamydia, as it is spread during sex. It is most common in those aged 14-24 years, but can occur at all ages.
With our same day chlamydia treatment service, you can meet with an online doctor and have your STI treated within minutes. Instead of going to your doctor in person you can meet conveniently with a top PlushCare doctor online and get diagnosed and prescribed any necessary medication.

Check Your Symptoms
70-90% of men and women with chlamydia do not have symptoms. There are some differences in how chlamydia presents in men vs women. In general, the most common reported symptoms in both men and women are:
Women can also have painful periods, bleeding between periods, pain during sex, abdominal pain, or a fever. Men can also have a less common symptom of swelling or pain in either or both testicles. While rare, chlamydia can infect your eyes, causing itching, redness, or discharge, or your throat, causing soreness.
Get a Prescription Online
If you think you have chlamydia consult a doctor about your treatment options. If a PlushCare doctor thinks you could benefit from medication, they can write you a prescription for antibiotics. Doctors can diagnose, treat and prescribe medication, just like an in-person doctor. PlushCare doctors will then electronically send your prescription to the pharmacy of your choice.
Before writing you a prescription the doctor will order a lab test for you. You will need to test positive for chlamydia before beginning treatment to rule out other conditions.

Since chlamydia is caused by a bacterial infection, treatment for chlamydia is a regimen of oral antibiotics. The most common recommended course of treatment is to prescribe doxycycline or azithromycin (the brand name is Zithromax). The infection should clear after one to two weeks.
You and your sexual partner(s) should not have sex again until treatment is complete. You should wait at least one week after completing a prescribed single dose medication and finish all doses if you are prescribed a seven-day treatment.
