is it true that if you get chlamydia, you can cure it in the vaginal area but it still remains in the gut and can reinfect you? is there no way to get it out of the body completely?

Hi

I have not heard of chlamydia doing that.

Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted infection (STI) that is caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis and is a curable STI (leave’s the body completely) when treated with antibiotics.

It is common for people to have no symptoms when they have chlamydia. This means it is very important that sexual partners are treated for chlamydia as well so that the chlamydia is not passed back to the person who has already been treated.

For more information on chlamydia have a look at our chlamydia page.
