Hello,

Thanks for the query,

Doxycyciline is a broad spectrum antibiotic and can treat both these infections.
Although the trend today is to use a single dose of cefixime for gonorrhoea and single dose azithromycin for chlamydia. But 10 day treatment with doxycycline is good enough to treat both infections.

Hope I answered your query. Let me know if you have any other enquiries.

Hello,

Thanks for writing to us.

Usually there should be a good response within a week. The discharge should stop in a week.

If it is still continuing probably you need to change antibiotic. Perhaps you should ask the treating doctor to consider cefalosporin and azithromycin.

Hope I answered your query. Let me know if you have other concerns.

Hello,

The shot you had may be a ceftriaxone injection. It is a cefalosporin and will act very fast.
You can expect results within 4 or 5 days.

Hope you get well soon.

Thank you
