No, not normally: Such symptoms might be due to a vaginal yeast infection, which can be triggered by some antibiotics. This is more likely if your chlamydial infection was treated with doxycycline, less likely if azithromycin was used. If these symptoms persist, return to the clinic or doctor who treated you for chlamydia.
