A 25-year-old female asked:
If my partner & i take our antibiotics azithromycin 1dose for chlamydia today tuesday sept 3, can we have sex next tuesday without getting reinfected?

Complicated question: Assuming that neither of you have other partners (for they would need to be treated as well), you both should be ok. But i would still recommend condoms to fully protect each other. There is always the possibility of treatment resistant chlamydia, i would recommend you f/u with your doctor for toc (test of cure).

Fully Treated: It sure sounds like you are fully treated. Please ask a different question now if you still have any other medical concerns.
