Adam Cloe has been published in various scientific journals, including the "Journal of Biochemistry." He is currently a pathology resident at the University of Chicago. These enzymes are needed for the unwinding of DNA so that it can be replicated. Cloe holds a Bachelor of Arts in biochemistry from Boston University, a M. DNA replication is essential for bacteria to reproduce and multiply. Ciprofloxacin, according to Rx List, blocks the action of two different bacterial enzymes, which are known as DNA gyrase and DNA topoisomerase IV. View Full Profile Ciprofloxacin belongs to a class of antibiotics known as fluoroquinolones. Thus, by blocking these critical enzymes, ciprofloxacin is able to prevent bacteria, such as those which cause chlamydia. Ciprofloxacin does not directly kill bacteria, but it does slow their growth, allowing the body's immune system to kill them. Because ciprofloxacin works differently than some other antibiotics, such as penicillin and tetracycline, it can be used to treat bacteria which are resistant to those medications. I contracted Chlamydia from my partner and was treated within the month of getting it. shortly after being treated i noticed i was having discharge and abdominal bloating, cramping, irregular periods, spotting and bleeding during intercourse, pressure in my bladder, urine frequency and burning. i went back to my doctor on base (i am military) and she said it was strange i was having these issues and she sent me for another chlamydia test. i went toan urgent care off base because the pain was extremely annoying and i couldn’t stand the constant visits to the bathroom. i was treated for a UTI even thought my tests weren’t positive for one. i was given cipro and also sent for my second chlamydia test because of my discharge. after a few days of the cipro not working i was able to get an appointment on base. the doctor performed a pelvic exam and got cultures and then diagnosed me with pelvic inflammatory disease and prescribed me levaquin and also flagyl because i had BV….i was sent for std checks again and it was negative as well.
If the Cipro treatment was not effective, then no other fluoroquinolone antibacterial antibiotic would work, right? such as Ofloxacin. If while I was using Doxy, the symptoms disappeared, then would that be an indicator of Chlamydia rather than Gonorrhea? Chlamydia infection is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections. It is spread through unprotected vaginal, anal or oral sex with an infected.
