Reviving Intimacy Together After Chlamydia

Climbing back into the cozy bed of intimacy after a Chlamydia diagnosis can feel like a daunting hike, but it's one you and your partner can conquer with a map of trust and a compass of communication. Chlamydia, that sneaky bacteria, can put a damper on the duvet of love, but it's not a dead end—not by a long shot. Let’s walk through how you can rebuild that bridge to intimacy together.

Unmasking the Invisible Guest

Chlamydia might not always ring the doorbell with noticeable symptoms, but it's more common than you'd think. It's like that uninvited guest at a party—you don't see it, but it's there, affecting millions. If it shows up, remember: It's nothing a good antibiotic can't handle. And hey, getting tested? It’s as easy as pie and as crucial as the trust in your relationship.

When Chlamydia Shakes the Foundation

The news of Chlamydia can quake the grounds of any relationship. If it hits you, sit down together, hold hands, and talk it out. It's a bump in the road, not the end of it. Navigate this stretch with empathy and understanding—it's you two versus the problem, not you versus each other.

After overcoming Chlamydia, embracing safe sex practices becomes more pivotal than ever. It's like stepping up your game in the bedroom by playing it smart. B Condoms? Absolutely. They're the classic go-to.

But let's talk about "B doxy-PEP", a morning-after pill for STDs. This specialized prescription antibiotic formulation works its magic when taken within 72 hours of unprotected sex. It's like a safety net, giving you a chance to dodge STDs, including Chlamydia if you've had an oopsie moment.

In wrapping up, remember that overcoming Chlamydia together is a testament to your relationship's strength. It's about bouncing back and diving back into the deep end of your intimacy pool with both feet.


  • Open dialogue is your golden ticket.

  • Treatment is a tandem bike ride.

  • And safe sex is your forever plus one.

Keep the conversation going, stay in tune with each other's needs, and above all, take care of your health. Because when you do, the rest falls into place—like the perfect puzzle of your renewed intimacy.

What is doxy-PEP?

Doxy-PEP means taking the antibiotic doxycycline after sex, to prevent getting an STI. It is like a morning-after pill but for STIs. Taking doxy-PEP reduces your chance of acquiring syphilis, gonorrhea, and chlamydia by about two-thirds.

When should I take doxy-PEP?

Two 100 mg pills of doxycycline should be taken ideally within 24 hours but no later than 72 hours after condomless sex. Condomless sex means oral, anal or vaginal/front-hole sex where a condom isn’t used for the entire time.

What about when I have sex again?

If you have sex again within 24 hours of taking doxycycline, take another dose 24 hours after your last dose. You can take doxycycline as often as every day when you are having condomless sex but don’t take more than 200 mg (two 100 mg pills) every 24 hours.

How should I take doxy-PEP?

• Take doxycycline with plenty of water or something else to drink so that it does not get stuck when you swallow. If your stomach is upset by doxycycline, taking it with food may help.

• Some people are more sensitive to the sun when they take doxycycline, so wear sunscreen.

• Please do not share doxycycline with others.

• Avoid dairy products, calcium, antacids, or multivitamins 2 hours before after taking doxycycline
