I Was given zpack and shot for clamydia today at the hospital but when is the next time i can have sex without reinfecting myself a week or 2 weeks?
Chlamydia treatment 483171215
You cannot reinfect yourself at any time -- but you could be reinfected if your partner wasn't treated. Ideally you should wait a week before having sex, and then only after your partner has also been treated for chlamydia. Also, you both should be retested in about 3 months to check for persistent or recurrent infection. Also use condoms -- it is apparent that you or your partner has been unsafe.

I have copd. When I sit, my 02 is 95-97. When I walk it's 98. Most copders get lower not higher. Whats going on with that?
Compromised lungs Dealing_with_a_collapsed_lung
in advanced cases of COPD, the lungs are not able to provide enough oxygen during periods of higher oxygen demands such as exericise, and there may come a point where the lungs fail even at rest. That's why you should avoid anything that might cause further lung damage
