I dont quite understand how a one time dose of azithromycin
will treat or cure chlamydia?
There are certain guidelines in sexual medicine to follow & certain protocols. With the advent of the internet, these are readily available to all to peruse through. I recommend you look at the CDC guidelines for the treatment of chlamydial infections or the WHO guidelines for the same.
Here you will also find the parameters to ascertain a chlamydial infection be it the urine or a swab test & all this is 'objective'.
Yes, you may have more than one infection & a detailed sexual history may be of more relevance & a check of your partner/partners' as the case may be will also help in the diagnosis. Always treat all partners' simulataneously.
The bottom line however remains..."practice safe sex" & stay 'safe'!
Regds & Best wishes for a speedy resolution to your problem.
