Brief Answer:
Bactrium cannot cure a chlamydia infection!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thank you so much for this query.

I am so sorry to hear about this unprotected sexual encounter. Please, always endeavor to protect yourself during all sexual encounters. Bacterium cannot treat chlamydia infection. The drug of choice should be doxycycline for 21days. Bactrim is a non starter to treat chlamydia.

I hope this helps. I wish you well. Feel free to ask for more information and clarifications if need be. Above all, thanks for using our services.
