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?
Maybe: The typical treatment is given in a single dose or over 2 wks. It does take a while to kill the germ. If you had prior exposure and were not treated, you likely have it anyway. Condoms help you avoid some risk but is not 100%. In this situation it is hard to say if you are at risk or not. There are other details we don't know from what you listed.

Hi doctor, after taking azithromycin to treat chlamydia. When should I get tested again to make sure it's out of my system?
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.
My doctor just prescribed me one dose of azithromycin to treat chlamydia. My boyfriend doesn't have any insurance currently and needs this as well. Is?
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.

Not enough: This dose is not reliable against chlamydia. You need to find another 500 mg; in fact, if you already treated yourself, you need another two doses -- total 1 g taken all at once. 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.
