Consult your doctor and answer any questions they may have. Be sure to inform your health care provider of any sexual contact you may have had with some who has LGV (A.D.A.M Medical Encyclopedia, 2013). Testing can range from biopsies of any lymph nodes and blood tests to a physical exam looking for specific symptoms (A.D.A.M Medical Encyclopedia, 2013). Treatment for LGV is a three week administration of antibiotics (Public Health Agency of Canada, 2013) such as tetracycline, erythromycin, doxycycline, or azithromycin (A.D.A.M Medical Encyclopedia, 2013).
