Chlamydia: The 1000 mg dose is not exactly rocket science and there is a good possibility that you have taken enough of the prescribed dose. I believe that you could be tested in a week to determine whether you're clear of the infection.

No effect: The azithromycin does not effect your birth control or your menstrual cycle. Spotting is not unusual while on birth control.
