Hi. I tested positive for Chlamydia and was given Zithromax (1gm). One week later because of personal concern I was prescribed Doxycycline (100mg 2x/day, for 7 days). 18 days after beginning initial treatment I was retested (urine test) and the result came back Equivocal. So what exactly am I supposed to do with that result? My doc told me to come back in a month, but because of my personal life, I don't think waiting a month is going to cut it.
My Dr. tried to reassure me that I had the appropriate treatment and that the test is so sensitive, we may have to wait a little longer to make sure all the DNA is gone.
Also, if the result is equivocal doesn't that mean that I "might" still have the infection? In that case, why wouldn't a doctor continue treating me.
