Stop Rx, get tested: You shouldn't treat yourself. You should tested for chlamydia plus other STDs. Doxycycline is good but needs treatment for 7 days (100 mg twice daily); azithromycin is effective and only a single dose (1 g) is needed. Netherlands has world class STD clinics, and expert care probably is available in Nijmegen. Take no more doxy so testing (Monday?) will be more accurate.
