Improving as expecte: You have been treated appropriately for both gonorrhea and chlamydia, as well as for nongonococcal urethritis (NGU, often called nonspecific urethritis or NSU in the UK). It often takes 7-10 days for symptoms to clear entirely, so it sounds like you're on track. Continue to avoid sex and recheck with the GUM clinic (or whoever treated you) if symptoms are still present after a week or so. ...Read more

If I was given 4 tablets of zithromax or an STD treatment, how long enforce I'm cured?

Wait two weeks!: I would recommend abstaining from intercourse for two weeks after receiving treatment with Azithromycin for an std. You want to make sure that your partner is treated as well. Give the medicine time to work. Although it probably does not take this long to clear the infection, waiting will ensure that your partner is treated as well as yourself! ...Read more

I took zithromax to cure chlamydia but am not sure if I could be preg, my bf& I had unprotected sex after I got my IUD remove, before finding out std.?

Preg test, test cure: Zithromax is safe in pregnancy, and is used commonly both to treat chlamydia and for other infections. You and your partner should both be treated for chlamydia, practice safe sex, and get retested 2 weeks after treatment to make sure the chlamydia is gone. It is fine to wait for this 2-week follow-up appt to do a pregnancy test, or get one over-the-counter sooner if you've already missed a period. ...Read more
