Is 6.5 days enough for Chlamydia treatment to work ?
I took 1g(4 tablet dose) of Azithromycin on Monday at 11am. I had sex with my partner on Sunday evening, so 6 and a half days instead of the recommended 7 days. My partner was in the last day of a 10 day treatment of Amoxicillin. My question is this. Should I be ok having sex half a day before I was supposed to, and will the 10 days amoxicillin treatment rid my partner of the infection too ?
Was she on 500 mg 3x a day for 7 days? If not, then she isn't cured.
Is she pregnant?
If she was on that dose, you all are probably ok, but I would definitely go back for a retest in a month or so to make sure its gone since Amox isn't the first line of treatment.
Also, if you haven't figured out how it entered your relationship (did someone have another partner, did one of you come into the relationship with it, etc), you need to make sure everyone who needs to be has been treated.
