7-10 days: The standard treatments clear the infection in 1-2 days, but symptoms take longer to clear up. Discharge or painful urination usuallly start improving within 2 days, can take 7-10 days to be gone entirely. If things aren't clearing up this soon, return to your doctor to be rechecked. Don't resume sex until at least 7 days have passed, all symptoms are gone, and your partner (s) have been treated. ...Read more

Gonorrhea and chlamydia came back, I am now wondering if the antibiotic treatments have failed or if I have something else?

Reinfection: The most common reason an std returns is because someone re-infected you. Your same partner or a new partner. If you have gonorrhea and chlamydia, all of your partner (s) needs to complete antibiotics too. There are some cases of antibiotic resistant gonorrhea, but those aren't widespread yet. Make sure that on your retreatment, both you and your partner (s) complete entire antibiotic therapy! ...Read more

I have both chlamydia and gonorrhea I got treatment already how long before its 100 percent cured? Also when can I have sex again?

1 wk after treatment: One week after you and your partner both complete treatment, you can resume sex. You should be cured, assuming you both took your medication exactly as prescribed.

Is a week to long to wait to get tested for gonorrhea and/or chlamydia if you have symptoms just nervous?

Get tested: If you have symptoms of an STD, or have had unprotected sex, you should get tested, sooner rather than later. If you have symptoms, you should avoid sexual contact (intercourse of any type) until you are tested and/or treated appropriately.
If you do have a positive test for any STD, also make sure any of your partners are tested and treated as well. ...Read more

How long should I wait after exposure to Chlamydia or gonorrhea for medicine to be effective? I know it takes a few days for it to come up in tests..

Chlamydia treatment: With recommended treatment (azithromycin or doxycycline), chlamydia is non-infectious for partners after 2-3 days, but to be safe it is best to have no sex for at least a week, and only with partners who also were treated or not previously exposed. The standard tests are reliable any time more than 4-5 days after exposure. ...Read more

Hello. I took zythromax and (after changing from "m" medication) I am currently on clindamysin for chlamydia and gonorrhea. After finish the meds how long will it be until I'm considered cured? I was also diagnosed with hvp. Would you think there is somet

PID?: What is "m medication"? Clindamycin isn't used by itself for gonorrhea or chlamydia except for tube infection (pelvic inflammatory disease, PID); other antibiotics usually are also needed. This kind of complex and probably serious problem can't be helped by online advice except to take the drug (s) as directed, discuss w/ doc. Make sure partner (s) treated. HPV is an entirely separate STD problem. ...Read more

Hi, Is Ciprofloxacin good vs Gonorrhea and how long should I take it? I was told to take Azithromycin as well for Chlamydia. Is it it ok to combine?

Hi, Is Ciprofloxacin good vs Gonorrhea and how long should I take it? I was told to take Azithromycin as well for Chlamydia. Is it it ok to combine?

Yes you need to take: Both antibiotics for these diseases. However in recent population studies in the USA and throughout the world, fluoroquinolone-resistant strains of Neisseria gonorrhaea have become widespread, especially in more endemic areas with the highest prevalence. This means that it may be safer for you to seek a single dose Ceftriaxone in the arm or buttock for best available treatment method. ...Read more

Had a Pap smear 3 weeks ago. HPV was negative, Pap smear was normal and gonorrhea and chlamydia came back negative. Trich still says pending 3 weeks later. Does a lab usually take that long? I was negative 6 months ago and have not switched partners.

Had a Pap smear 3 weeks ago. HPV was negative, Pap smear was normal and gonorrhea and chlamydia came back negative. Trich still says pending 3 weeks later. Does a lab usually take that long? I was negative 6 months ago and have not switched partners.

Lab Trich result: Some labs do take an inordinate amount of time to give a report on Trichomonas, however, if your MD or you had those concerns a wet mount/prep could have been done at the initial examination to look for the organism under the microscope. The negative Trich result from 6 months ago has no bearing as there may have been many episodes of intercourse since then and all it takes is one outside contact. ...Read more

I tested negative for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea and took Azithromycin on 12/24 evening, how long does it take for dysuria symptoms to resolve? Thanks!

I tested negative for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea and took Azithromycin on 12/24 evening, how long does it take for dysuria symptoms to resolve? Thanks!

Soon, maybe: It is very unlikely that Chlamydia or Gonorrhea would cause dysuria, so this might be a bladder (urinary tract) infection. There are also other possibilities, none of which can be properly evaluated without an exam. IF it is a bladder infection and IF it is sensitive to azithromycin then you should be feeling better. ...Read more
