Well, I went to the Planned Parenthood about a week ago to get pap-smear and she gave me and my boyfriend the Zithromax powder because we probably still had Clamydia, so we haven't had sex for like a week. Do you think that if we have sex without condoms later on we could get the infection back? I really wanna know? She also gave me a pill because she said I had a yeast infection. How do you get that?Well, thankyou for listening.

you and your boyfriend transmitted chlamydia. that should be a wake-up call for you to both play it safe. After all, is an orgasm really worth risking your health??? definitely hold off on sex, not just for a week, but till you are totally recovered from chlamydia.

so will sex without condoms bring the infection back? yes. if one of you has cured your chlamydia, and the other hasn't, then you have unprotected sex, you can reinfect yourself or your partner. moreover, you could pass around some other infection, one that's not curable like HPV or Herpes.

Come on, condoms are easy, painless, and protect your health. Do yourself and your partner a favor and start using them. With a good water-based lube.

and yeast infection. those are caused by imbalances in your vagina. yeasts live there naturally, sharng space with certain bacteria. sometimes, the balance is thrown off, and either the bacteria take over, or the yeast take over. in either case, the result is an infection.

sometimes, if you take antibiotics, you wipe out your happy bacteria, and the yeast take oer. in that case you get a yeast infection, and you wind up being prescribed Diflucan (that pill you were given).

Ways to prevent yeast infections include not douching, wearing cotton underwear, and keeping the area clean.

btw, yeast infections can be passed onto your sexual partner. so there's another reason to use a condom.
