See below: Recommended first-line treatment for GC/Chlamydia urethritis is either Azithromycin 1 gm (which you received) or Doxycycline 100 mg twice daily x 7 days. Though symptoms often show improvement within 24-48 hrs, it can sometimes take several days longer, so I would recommend waiting a few more days. There is an ~10-20% failure or recurrence rate. If symptoms still present after 7 days, re-evaluate. ...Read more
