Chlamydia is among the most common sexually transmitted infections in the UK. While it affects men and women, a lot of young adults are infected by it. The bacterial infection typically occurs on the genitals, throat, or the anus, and if left untreated, it can lead to complications, like pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and testicle inflammation. Many people who are infected will not show symptoms, so it is important to get tested regularly, especially if you are sexually active and changing sexual partners. Only a physician can administer proper treatment in the form of medications like Doxycycline.
Doxycycline is a powerful antibiotic to be taken over a course of seven days. A general practitioner will prescribe a 100mg dose, which you need take twice a day. It is important to complete the course of antibiotics to make sure that chlamydia will be treated and will not resist the treatment. Doxycycline, however, is not suitable for individuals who are allergic to the antibiotic, so if you have taken this medication before, inform your GP about it so they can prescribe a different medication.
Online GP consultation services can prescribe Doxycycline medicine for chlamydia treatment online in the UK. Make sure that it is a CQC-regulated service and that it has GMC registered doctors. Rest assured, consultation will be conducted in a discreet and private manner that protects your privacy and identity. You should take note of the side effects that could occur during treatment, such as nausea, allergic rashes, diarrhoea, and vomiting.
Certain conditions may mean you should not take Doxycycline. Individuals who have kidney or liver disease, and those who are breastfeeding or pregnant should not be treated with this medication without a face-to-face consultation with a general practitioner. If you have taken Doxycycline or any other chlamydia medication within the past three months, consider consulting with a doctor before ordering a second course of antibiotics.
