Youur follow-up questions are repetitive. As I said, she did not take the medication as recommended for treatmetn of chlamydia. Data from early in the development of azithromycin showed the single large dose to be more effective than haqving the medication spread out over time. I participated in the trials which led to the approval of this drug for chlmydia treatment. If you wish to go with other sources, that is up to you. EWH
So you advise retesting because she did not had the single 1mg dosage? although her dosage is 500mg higher than mine, only spread over 3 days?
I just looked for the dosage on the internet, emedexpert and other website suggests even a lower alternative regime: 500 mg in a single dose on day 1 followed by 250 mg once daily for 2 days. But I'm not an expert.
If dosage would have been ok, would 8 days after the start of the cure be safe to start having intercourse?
Sorry for being so worried.
Welcome to the Forum. I'll try to help. Re-testingg of your GF may be in both of your best interests. Your re-exposure was not a major concern however your GF took a lower than recommended dose of azithromycin on a schedule that has never been studied. There is a chance that this treatment might work less well than the recommended therapy. As a result, my advice would be for her to have a re-test. I feel less strongly that you need repeat testing. Retesting should not be done until at least two weeks following the completion of therapy however. Should her repeat test be positve, you both woul dneed to be re-treated, ust to be sure that you had not been re-infected.
As for the discharge present on day 9 following treatment, if this was present on awakening, this is not uncommon. On the other hand, if it is present at other times of the day, there is some benefit to you being re-tested as well.
I hope these comments are helpful. EWH
