Hi, so I know to be on the safe side, the doctor says to abstain from sexual activity for a full 7 days after taking Azythromycin (sp?) to treat Chlamydia. They say this is largely because of the risk of you and your partner re-infecting each other.
So, I am wondering if, after I take my single dose of 1000 mg of Azythromycin, can I have sex with a partner with no STDs and not infect him? We went to the clinic together to get tested before ever having sex, so we are 100% sure he doesn't have anything. Am I contagious for that full 7 days? Or is it safe to, say, wait only 4-5 days?
I'd appreciate any help or guidance you can offer! Thanks!
