In brief: STD Testing

Azithromycin is fully effective at one gram dose for all forms of chlamydia.
You should be free of any contagiousness forty-eight hours after taking the medication. Now, the bigger picture is that many on the front lines of the std epidemics would have also treated you for gonorrhea. If you have any symptoms that do not resolve with the Azithromycin then we may want you also given gc treatment.
