Azithromycin straight after sex

Hi, I had unprotected sex 5 days ago and took 1g of azithromycin 2 days ago. Will this clear any possible Chlamydia infection?

Have been tested but just wanted to take just in case to catch it early if I had it at all

symptoms of this usually are white discharge and/or burning while urinating that occur about 5 days post exposure. We cant recommend prescription doses only a doctor can.
It would be best to work with your doctor about this as if you have it the person that you got it from should be notified, tested and treated.

I have no symptoms but was told that if I take the antibiotic it would clear anything that was there anyway?

Sometimes a follow up is needed.  The problem with what you did is how do you contact the other person now because they should be notified also to stop the spreading of it.
