Question: condom broke


 marley420 - Fri Dec 22, 2006 12:17 am

I am 25female my boyfriend is 23 & apparently i had chlamydia for months before we discovered it due to no symptoms. I believe it came from an ex that cheated on me, anyhow, we were both given a perscription for a sinle dose each of 4 pink pills (do not remember the name).We were told not to have unprotected sex for 7 days to make sure it clears. The next day we had sex with a condom & it BROKE! Should we be worried because we both had taken the medicine the day before. He did not ejaculate yet and we both jumped into the shower although i know that does not really do anything.I am due to be retested january 18th but i still am afraid we may have gave it back to each other unless the medicine could still work. Please help! I was cleared on all other deseases except HIV for the time being including cervical cancer.

User avatar If you were both treated it is unlikely for you to have been reinfected. However, if there is any doubt I would recommend reevaluation to ensure resolution. Many labs are now doing urine testing for chlamydia and gonorrhea so testing is much easier.
