Not recommended: Hi. A single IM injection of ceftriaxone and a single oral dose of azithromycin are what is currently recommended. Ciprofloxacin is not a recommended treatment. If your doc prescribed ciprofloxacin, please see an infectious disease specialist to get adequate treatment. Your partner(s) should also be tested and treated. Good luck!
