If you believe you may have been exposed to chlamydia, it’s essential to get diagnosed right away. But if you’ve already been diagnosed, what’s the next step?
You may not even necessarily be sure whether you need to seek out chlamydia medication at all. In many cases, it doesn’t present obvious symptoms and may not seem to present a conscious concern in your everyday life.
Make no mistake, though, that chlamydia can cause serious problems later on if left untreated. The good news is that it’s very easy to test and treat. In fact, you can complete most or all of the steps necessary for effective chlamydia treatment from the comfort of your home.
In this blog post, we’re going to detail everything you need to know about getting chlamydia medicine online. We’ll outline the treatment process, explain how you can conveniently get tested, and offer guidance for getting your medication.
Chlamydia treatment involves three basic steps:
An important thing to remember is that you do not need insurance to receive chlamydia treatment. There are many resources available for you to get the medical care you need wherever you need it, whenever you need it.
You can, for example, talk to an online doctor in a telehealth format and get your diagnosis online. This makes a difference to people for a variety of reasons, ranging from the simple convenience of not having to leave your home to the ability to avoid seeking chlamydia treatment in a visible setting. Whatever the case, there’s nothing obstructing you from getting help and taking care of your sexual health.
Like doctor visits, there are a few options available when it comes to getting tested for chlamydia.
Continuing along the theme of convenience, you can get an at-home test kit for chlamydia if this is the most suitable option for you. Many at-home STI and STD tests vary in the accuracy of their results, but for chlamydia, the statistics support a home test kit as a viable choice.
Self-collected vaginal swabs have a correct positive result rate of 92% and a correct negative result rate of 98%. Urine tests are also shown to be reasonably accurate, providing a correct positive result 87% of the time and showing correct negative result rate of 99%.
You can order a test online or pick it up at a local pharmacy. If discretion is important to you, make sure the company you order a test from online ships the test in nondescript packaging. After collecting a sample, ship it off to a certified laboratory.
Once you have your result, it’s time to talk to a doctor. Only then can you receive an official diagnosis and a prescription.
When it comes to medication, you can take a similar approach as you did with the test: order online or pick it up from a local pharmacy.
As we’ve written in a prior blog post, many big pharmacy chains have online components that allow you to mail-order your prescription chlamydia medicine. Insurance may help when you order from these pharmacies. If you don’t have any, you can also order from an independent online pharmacy. Do your research, though, before buying from this kind of pharmacy to make sure they’re reputable.
