Today I found out I have chlamydia. I was tested as part of a regular checkup. I'm freaked cause it just all seems so random and out of the blue. I took two pills about an hour ago (azythromycin) but im still stressed out and I'm not sure what to do. It's like I've convinced myself that it's here for good and I'm so scared. My bf has asked me three times if I've cheated on him, which makes me feel really crappy cause I didn't and I don't know what else to tell him. Idk what to do.

Hi!  Awesome job at taking care of yourself and getting tested! It sounds like you’re worried that chlamydia isn’t treatable, but in fact, it is easily cured. Chlamydia is the most commonly reported STD in the United States. Most people who have chlamydia don’t know it since there are often no symptoms. That’s why it’s so important to get tested. 

 It is important to take the medication provided by your health care provider correctly. You may want to consider a second visit with your health care provider in three months for a follow-up appointment, even if your sex partner has also been treated. It can be really hard to talk to partners about this, but it’s so important for all to get tested and take the medication too.

We offer STD testing and treatment at Planned Parenthood. To schedule an appointment and to find a health center closest to you, call 1-800-230-PLAN.

Many STDs have no symptoms. The only way to know whether you have an STD is to get tested. If you’re nervous about getting tested don’t sweat it! STD tests are quick, simple, and painless. 
And just so you know, not all checkups include STD testing — so unless you ask to be tested, you can’t assume you will be.
 So…what are you waiting for? April is #GYT month! Call 1-800-230-PLAN (7526) to schedule an appointment.

I need advice. I'm 15 might be prego. I need advice on how to tell my mom. She knows about me and my bf being sexually active. We have used protection but the condom broke. His mom is here for me. But my mom im scared to tell. Im scared she will have me get a abortion. Idk what to do. what should I do? My mom is the only fear me and him have.

Hi! Thanks for your message.

Talking about pregnancy is tough and sometimes talking to parents is tough. It is good that you are thinking about people in your life that will support you. It also sounds like you have thought about your options. When a woman is pregnant she can continue with the pregnancy and be a parent, continue and go with adoption, or end the pregnancy and have an abortion. Before making that decision it is important to see if you are pregnant. Planned Parenthood offers pregnancy tests. Please call 1-800-230-PLAN to find the health center closest to you. They will do the test and talk about your options. They can also help you figure out how to let people in your life like your mother know what is going on with you. Parents care about their kids and it is important to talk with parents and trusted adults about these important decisions.

It is great that you are taking care of yourself by asking questions.

I had unprotected sex last week, he did ejaculate inside of me but it was a week before I was suppose to ovulate. Do you have to ovulate for there to be a chance to get pregnant? All of that kind of confuses me.

It is great that you are taking care of yourself by asking questions. A woman’s fertile days depend on the life span of the egg and the sperm. Her egg lives for about one to three days after ovulation. Sperm can live inside her body for about 5 to 9 days.

Knowing when your fertile days will happen can help you avoid a pregnancy. It can also help you plan one. This helps you figure out the other fertile days that come before and after you ovulate. Then you can track your fertility pattern — the days of the month when you are fertile and the days of the month when you are not. This should be done carefully because women don’t all have the same fertility pattern and fertility patterns may differ from month-to-month. Learning about your fertility cycle is something Planned Parenthood can help with.

If you are just interested in birth control methods and protecting yourself with condoms we are here to help. Please call 1-800-230-PLAN to find the health center closest to you. Or, if you believe you may be pregnant, Planned Parenthood offers pregnancy testing and we can talk to you about options.
