Most people will not have symptoms however some can include:
Chlamydia is treated with antibiotics.
The two most commonly prescribed treatments are:
Azithromycin (single dose) - 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.
Doxycycline (longer course) - 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
If you vomit within 2hrs of taking Azithromycin, do not complete the course of Doxycycline, or have had sex when advised not to then you will need further treatment.
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.
