Very quick: Recovery time while on treatment and afterwards is very quick. There really is no "down-time" and one can work and function in their normal capacity during treatment. Use protection with a condom during treatment to prevent spreading the infection to others.

Mouth to penis CPR?: It is unlikely to transmit chlamydia unless the woman's mouth is already infected. In that case, it could produce a reaction(cpr). The mouth is rife with bacteria as opposed to the "cleaner" vagina, so before one "biblically knows" a partner, it is a great idea to know your partner well and remain monogamous.
