Not certain: After how many days of treatment are you seeing discharge? You likely need to have this chlamydia reexamined to check if resistant to the antibiotic you have been taking and to determine best treatment for it.

Take your abx: Usually for gonorrhea and chlamydia, patients are given Rocephin (ceftriaxone) as a one time shot and either zithromax or doxycycline. Metronidazole is usually given for bacterial vaginosis and trichomoniasis. You will need to finish the entire course of the antibiotics (usually 10-14 days). Sometimes it may take a week before your symptoms improve. For more info see www.Cdc.Gov/std/default.Htm.

Need to be seen: If you are being treated for chlamydia and likely pid, and you are still having an abnormal discharge, then you really need to be seen. There is nothing that you can do on your own to solve this or make the symptoms go away. The infection needs to be identified and properly treated.

Some is normal : You may have discharge foray days free the antibiotic cure is complete. Some may be due to residual inflammation, some to overgrowth of residentv yeast or bacteria. You must go back to have a test of cure as scheduled.
