It might have been, but because it can take longer to cure than 2-3 days in some people, docs suggest waiting the full 7 days.

Even in the prescribing info in zithromax, it says that it can be working for 7 days.

Did you have sex with the same person?  If you did, you both should be retreated to be safe.

I'd call your doc and let them know you had sex, and see what they say.  Personally, and its just my opinion for me, I'd want to be retreated if I had sex with the same person.

If you had sex with a different partner, you should tell your partner so he/she can get tested and treated.

That's a good idea, and your partner should be retreated before you have sex again.

i find azithromycin doesnt work for chlamydia for some people sometimes. if its not effective the doctor will try to give you another kind of antibiotic. To BE SURE you have to asked for a retest for chlamydia so you will find out if your infection was treated or you were re infected again.. to be safe.... its better to have a follow up check up after medication so the doctor will give you a green light. before having sex
