Post treatment care

With a positive result on the STD test that you have requested online:

  • Contact your doctor.
  • Because a vaginal chlamydia is almost always anal, the treatment preference is no longer a one-time 2 tablet azithromycin but a week of doxycycline!

If you live in Groningen and you don't have a doctor, you can make an appointment here at StudentArts.

  • Talk to the doctor about who to warn. Usually you have to warn sex partners from the last 6 months. Sometimes from one or more years ago.
  • If you prefer not to tell your sexual partners that you have an STD, then the GGD can, with your permission, inform your sexual partners for you. Contact the GGD in your area via the GGD locator.
  • You can also warn your sexual partners online via partnerwaarschuwing.nl. This is done with a code that you receive from your doctor. Read more about online warnings below.
  • If you are warned about an STD, take this seriously. Take an STD test, even if you have no complaints.
If the result is positive, we recommend that you do not have any sex at least one week after completing the course of antibiotics. We also advise not to masturbate for the first week, because this can cause very small cracks in the mucous membrane, so that any 'STD bacteria' that are still present can lead to infection again.
 
If you have any questions or would like to talk about your STD test or the result, you can always contact us. So don't hesitate to contact us! See the contact information at the bottom of every page on this website. If you prefer to talk to your own doctor, you can of course schedule a consultation for it. In addition, you are always welcome to contact StudentArts: the general practicioner in Groningen that started and implemented Soastudentarts.
