In regards to chlamydia, if me and my partner both take the medication at the same time, how long before it will be gone. And when can we have sex?

In regards to chlamydia, if me and my partner both take the medication at the same time, how long before it will be gone. And when can we have sex?

Me and my boyfriend got treated for chlamydia at the same time but 6 days after treatment he fingered me & I rubbed his penis could we be reinfected?

No risk, no worries: It is recommended that people with chlamydia avoid sex for at least a week. However, since the two of you were treated together, sex probably wouldn't be harmful -- and the sort of contact you describe definitely isn't a problem. Don't worry about it. ...Read more
