Does zithromax used for chlamydia get rid of pid? How can I be sure if chlamydia did or didn't cause infertility ?

Does zithromax used for chlamydia get rid of pid? How can I be sure if chlamydia did or didn't cause infertility ?

PID: Because chlamydia can stay without symptoms, it can cause damage to the fallopian tubes and lead to infertility later in life. If diagnosed early, a single dose of zithromax should treat the infection and reduce any risk for complications. Still, the only way to know if there is any residual effect is to evaluate the fallopian tubes with a hysterosalpingogram. ...Read more

I took 2 grams of Zithromax Monday, I had a refill from a previous sinus infection, I took 1 gram today, will that affect the treatment of chlamydia?

I took 2 grams of Zithromax Monday, I had a refill from a previous sinus infection, I took 1 gram today, will that affect the treatment of chlamydia?

It depends: if by "affect the treatment," you mean "Will 2+ grams of Zithromax treat Chlamydia?" then the answer is yes. I wouldn't have prescribed the amount you used (a single 1 gram dose of Zithromax is recommended) but it shouldn't hurt you. Remember that your partner also needs to be treated and that Chlamydia can recur if you're re-exposed in the future. ...Read more

My friend was prescribed Zithromax for suspected Chlamydia infection and he was then prescribed another gram when treatment failed. Is this normal?

My friend was prescribed Zithromax for suspected Chlamydia infection and he was then prescribed another gram when treatment failed. Is this normal?

Hard to say: One of the primary reasons for treatment failure is the wrong diagnosis which led to ineffective treatment.You say "suspected"chlamydia".This agent shares symptoms with other germs, and retreating the wrong condition with an otherwise effective med is odd. I would want to confirm the diagnosis. Another possibility is continued exposure to an untreated partner with re-infection. ...Read more
