When is it safe to have sex after using azithromycin to treat chlamydia? I had sex with my partner who also got treated on the 7th day.

Ok if both treated: As long as both of you were treated, it's safe to have sex. Be sure to go back for retesting in about 3 months. The rate of reinfection at age 20 is about 20%. This means that 1 out of every 5 women will be positive again when rechecked in 3 months. ...Read more

I've taken 2 Azithromycin 500mg tablets for my diagnosed Chlamydia infection. How long do I have to wait until it's safe to have sex again?

I've taken 2 Azithromycin 500mg tablets for my diagnosed Chlamydia infection. How long do I have to wait until it's safe to have sex again?

A week, usually: Standard advice is to wait a week, and until any synmptoms have completely cleared up -- which also takes about a week. For sure no sex with new partners before then. However, if you and your partner have both been treated for chlamydia and your symptoms are improving, sex together before a week probably woudln't hurt anything. All recent partners need treatment, of course. ...Read more

Watch and see: If you want odds, see your bookie. Otherwise, wait to see if your symptoms return. Was this just a test to see if you can get away with 2 less days than the doctor recommended? There is usually a good reason for the recommendations that are made. If symptoms return, retest and retreat. ...Read more

If I take an entire gram of azithromycin today to treat my chlamydia should I still take the two leftover 250mg pills?

If I take an entire gram of azithromycin today to treat my chlamydia should I still take the two leftover 250mg pills?

Shouldn't need to.: Azithromycin 1 gm all at once is very effective for treating chlamydia as long as you don't get exposed to chlamydia again soon. Make sure any partners that you have come in contact with since the last time you had a chlamydia test are informed and treated. Use condoms! ...Read more

You should get tests: For other possible causes of urethritis or urinary infection. If you are not circumcised, it's possible that you may have local yeast overgrowth causing irritation. Especially since you were on medication that would not cure all potential causes of urethritis or all sexually transmitted infection, you may need more tests and treatment. Avoid sex until your doc says you're OK, and partner treated. ...Read more

Don't share meds!: Your question's incomplete, so I'm not sure what you're asking. But I suspect you want to share prescription meds with your boyfriend. I would NOT encourage you to do so. How do you know he "needs" Azithro? More than you? If he does need it, he should see a physician. Azithro may not be the best treatment med for his condition. If insurance is a barrier, use HealthTap Prime for live doctor visit. ...Read more

I took the 3 day pack 500mg of azithromycin for chlamydia the last pill was on Saturday when is it safe to have sex again.

Wrong dose: The proper treatment of chlamydia with azithromycin is a single dose of 1 gram (four 250 mg or two 500 mg tabliets). While it is likely that taking it over 3-4 days would work, it has never been studied and the effectiveness isn't known for sure. Discuss possible re-treatment with your doctor, or retesting in 3-4 weeks. And of course no sex with your former partner (s) until they have been treated. ...Read more

How long does it usually take for one dose of 1, 000 mg Azithromycin to clear up a RECTAL Chlamydia infection? I still have minor symptoms 11 days later after taking Azithromycin. Should I re-check?

How long does it usually take for one dose of 1, 000 mg Azithromycin to clear up a RECTAL Chlamydia infection? I still have minor symptoms 11 days later after taking Azithromycin. Should I re-check?

Seven days: You should not have sex again until you and your sex partner (s) have completed treatment. If your doctor prescribes a single dose of medication, you should wait seven days after taking the medicine before having sex. If your doctor prescribes a medicine for you to take for seven days, you should wait until you have taken all of the doses before having sex. I think you should get rechecked. ...Read more

But for worse, it's always possible to try other drugs with less side effects as needed. Work with doctor... ...Read more

One day ago I took azithromycin for chlamydia when can I have potected sex?

You could but: Condoms are very effective at preventing transmission of std that are caused by fluid like gonorrhea, chlamydia, trichomoniasis and hiv. It seems to me it would be more socially responsible until after you have been retested in a few weeks though before you put someone else at risk. You also should inform the current partner of the your recent infection so they have choice in their risk taking. ...Read more
