How long does it take for azithromycin to clear up chlamydia?
Last Friday I took azithromycin to clear up a possible case of chlamydia. I say possible because although my test results hadn't came back, I showed possible symptoms and my doctor chose to go ahead and give me the treatment just in case. She also gave me metronidazole to take for a week to clear up any other possible infections.
My question is, I took the azithromycin Friday morning. Tuesday night I had unprotected anal sex. My concern is, if I did in fact have chlamydia, what are the chances I passed it to my partner?
I've heard that azithromycin can clear chlamydia up in two to three days and I've heard it can take up to a week.
At the time I had sex, it had been close to five days. At this point, I don't even have my test results back so hopefully I don't have it to begin with, but I'm just anxious and waiting... so, help?
My husband and I took azithromycin (2 pills, one time). Although, I took it one day before he did. And so the wait--7 days. Except my husband and I had a "slip" 5 days into it. 4 days for him. I'm worried we're back at having chlamydia again.
The best thing for you to do to make sure is to get tested again. That's what I'm going to do.
And you should go tell him, he deserves to know. He'll prolly not like you anymore for it, but at least you're doing him good. In the future, he'll think about being safe first. And you can be guilt-free once he knows and you can go take care of yourself too. You never know he might've passed something to you too. ;-; Tell me what happens!
