Took 14day dose of doxycycline for chlamydia and had a rocephin shot as well. i waited two weeks after finishing antibiotics, to have sex with cleared partner. is that safe, because wouldnt i have been cured? or should i have waited to get retested?

You should be safe if partner is treated too or new partner who never had chlamydia.
