You would be fine. We recommend that people don’t have sex during the 7 day course of treatment or for 7 days after they have taken the single dose therapy. Not sure if you had the treatment that was the single dose or the one you took over 7 days, but it’s the same of not having sex for 7 days from when you first started taking the medication. After 7 days you are good to go.
The only thing to keep in mind is we recommend past sexual partners over the last 2 months get tested and treated for chlamydia as well. You would need to wait for 7 days after your partner has taken their medication before having unprotected sex with them.
You could go for a retest 4 weeks after you were treated if it is concerning you. We find for most people it’s not necessary to go for a retest as the medication works really well, we just recommend getting another chlamydia test 6 months later as a general screening test. If you have symptoms that make you concerned the chlamydia did not go away or have sex with an untreated partner come back to the clinic straight away.
