2-3 days at least: It takes time for medicines to build up in the body and rid the body of infection. The cdc has a whole lot of information about stds. Check it out at: http://www.Cdc.Gov/std/default.Htm.

Hard To Say: Depends upon how long it take to develop pelvic inflammatory disease in women or epididymitis in men. My best guess is this may take.
