Depends on the sympt: Chlamydia infection in women generally causes vaginal discharge and in men, almost no symptom to minimal discharge. The more symptomatic one is really gonorrhea as it is a more aggressive bacteria and tend to ride together with chlamydia. The dose of Azithromycin is enough to cure chlamydial infection. If your symptom has not resolved, there may be another problem that has not yet been fixed.

Not necessarily: Get re-tested and possibly re-treated and make sure any sexual partners have been treated, or you can get re-infected.

Chlamydia: Sometimes the 1 day treatment of azithromycin doesn't work. A longer duration treatment with a different antibiotic may be needed.
