Chlamydia: Most commonly the person infected and any partners are treated with Azithromycin 1 gram (1, 000 mg) as a single dose or Doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for 10 days.

No, not normally: Such symptoms might be due to a vaginal yeast infection, which can be triggered by some antibiotics. This is more likely if your chlamydial infection was treated with doxycycline, less likely if azithromycin was used. If these symptoms persist, return to the clinic or doctor who treated you for chlamydia. ...Read more

Is it safe to take the prescribed medicine for chlamydia if you now know that you are pregnant? N/a
It: It depends on which medication you were prescribed for your chlamydia. Doxycycline, ofloxacin, and Levofloxacin are not safe in pregnancy, but Azithromycin is perfectly safe to take while pregnant. If you were given azithromycin, take it, if not, call your doctor for a new prescription. Once treated, it is also very important that you have your doctor retest you in 3 weeks to make sure you are cured because untreated chlamydia can cause serious complications for your pregnancy.

I took a one dose medicine for chlamydia on Monday and had sex with an uninfected partner Tuesday night. He's getting tested, should I too again?
Just took the medicine for chlamydia yesterday. Went to doc today to see if I had pid. She said my pain level wasn't high enough. Get a 2nd opinion?
Maybe yes: Chlamydial PID often causes only mild pain; many PID cases from chlamydia cause no pain at all. OTOH, with only mild pain (or tenderness inside during pelvic exam) maybe treatment for uncomplicated chlamydia (doxycycline for 7 days or single dose azithromycin) would be enough. But if in doubt, PID treatment is often a good idea. Ask your doctor directly; or just get the 2nd opinion. Good luck! ...Read more
I took a after pill the morning after unprotected sex & 3 days later I had to take medicine for chlamydia. Its been a lil over a month still no period
Not chlamydia: I suppose it's possible you are pregnant despite the morning after pill; check with your doctor. In any case, the chlamydia and its treatment probably have nothing to do with it. Be sure your partner (s) are also treated. And please get started on contraception! Plus condoms for sex to prevent STD. ...Read more

Do your penis suppose to feel like it's irritated or tingling after a couple of days you took your chlamydia medicine n plus I stay peeing allday help?
Under treated?: No. Looking at your medical history it appears that you were not treated completely. Almost all of the public health officials I know and the doctors like me treating stds would treat you for both chlamydia and gonorrhea at the same time, regardless of what the test says. You need the shot, known as Ceftriaxone and to repeat at the same time the one gram of azithromycin. ...Read more
