Chlamydia is treated with antibiotics.
The two most commonly prescribed treatments are:
Doxycycline is the first line treatment for Chlamydia it is a weeks course of antibiotics . This will be given whether you have developed symptoms or not. These are however, contraindicated in pregnancy. You will be advised not to have any sexual contact (oral, vaginal, or anal-sex even with a condom or share sex toy) whilst taking treatment
Azithromycin 1grm followed by 500mg over 2 days - You will be advised not to have any sexual contact (oral, vaginal, or anal- sex even with a condom or share sex toy) for 7 days
Your infection will be cleared up 7 days after taking a single dose of antibiotics or after having finished a course of antibiotics
If you had symptoms, these should start to improve once you are treated.
If the symptoms do not improve after 2 weeks or get worse, we recommend that you attend your local sexual health clinic as you may have a different STI and require further tests and different antibiotics.
