How Much Azithromycin To Treat Chlamydia
My girlfriend was prescribed azithromycin to treat chlamydia & on the 5th day after, we had intercourse for 60 secs. Is there any type of risk?

1-3 months: The standard recommendation is to restest for chlamydia (and gonorrhea) about 3 months after treatment. This detects both reinfection, in case of reexposure, and also the rare treatment failure. Earlier testing usually isn't done, but if reassurance needed, you can retest at 1 month. But not before that: any earlier and the test can still be positive from the initial infection, even though cured. ...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 you could get 500 mg, surely you can get the rest. Contact your local health department for probable free treatment. Also, you need to be tested; and other sex partners (all within the past 2 months) also need Rx. ...Read more
