I'm a 39 year-old single man. After breaking-up with my ex more than a year ago, I got tested positive for Chlamydia (PCR). My doctor prescribed a single dose of 1000mg Azithromycin. I took the med and went on with my life. About a month ago, I noticed a clear discharge in the morning which is unusual for me. (I have no sexual contact for more than a year). I got tested again (PCR) and the result was again positive. The same doctor prescribed 2 days of 1000mg Azithromycin each. But after more than a week after the antibiotic course, I still have discharge in the morning which is obviously not normal.
1/ Does it mean I have persistent/chronic chlamydia?
2/ Could the CT I carry be resistant to Azithromycin?
3/ Are there any complications for men from having Chlamydia for a long time?
4/ What should I do now?
1. Probably not but maybe just need s strong or different dosage
3. Yes, but without testicular pain I doubt you have anything more serious
4. Follow up with your Dr again, ask for a different medication to try out
