LGV is treated with prescription antibiotics. It is important to take all your medications as directed. If you miss any doses, the infection may not be cured. Go back to your health care provider if this happens or if you still have symptoms after you finish your treatment.
It is important to not have sex (even with a condom) for 3 weeks after starting treatment. If you do you have sex during this time, you could pass LGV to your sexual partners or get it again. If this happens, talk to your health care provider.
The medications used to treat LGV are available for free in BC. Talk to your health care provider to see if they have them in stock.
