Dear Jessica

It is probably not too late to be treated - both can be treated together - but do not delay!! The problem might well be the irreversible damage that has already been done. You will also have a high chance of re-infection. I trust that having "had both of these dis(e)ases for about a year" you have had no sexual contact with anyone since you knew you had those diseases. Chlamydia & gonorrhea are STDs, and all your sexual partners need to be treated (and avoid sex until at least 7 days after being cleared!).

Pelvic Inflammatory disease (PID) is a serious complication of both chlamydia and gonorrhea. It can lead to infertility, chronic pelvic pain, and ectopic pregnancy. It occurs when certain bacteria, such as chlamydia or gonorrhea, move up from your vagina or cervix into your reproductive organs. To prevent PID, prompt treatment of chlamydia gonorrhea is important.

Many do not know they have these STDs because very often there are few (if any) symptoms. Even though symptoms of chlamydia may be (and usually are) mild or absent, serious complications that cause irreversible damage, including infertility, can occur unnoticed before you ever recognise there is a problem. Most women with gonorrhea do not have any symptoms, and even when they do, they are often mild and can be mistaken for a bladder or vaginal infection. With gonorrhea, you are at risk of developing serious complications from the infection, even if your symptoms are not present or are mild.

You will need to re-evaluate your life-style too.

Take Care

No it isn't too late. Most people are asymptomatic and do not realize they have it until they were diagnosed. So if there was a time frame to be treated before it isn't treatable then it will be a big discussed issue which it isn't.

However late it may be you must get treated. Chlamydia & gonorrhea are STDs, and all your sexual partners need to be treated. You must avoid sex until at least 7 days after being cleared.
