Brief Answer:
Regarding chlamydia

Detailed Answer:
Hello and welcome to ask a doctor service. I have gone through your query and noted your concern.

Was it protected sex or was it unprotected? What sort of sex it was? In any case, if the partner has been diagnosed it is advisable to treat all contacts with oral antibiotics e.g doxycycline 100mg, twice daily for a week or with a single dose of 1gm of Azithromycin.

Hope to assist you further. Take care.

I suggest you to take Oral Doxycycline 100mg twice a day for 7 days along with single dose of cefixime 400mg or single shot of injection Ceftriaxone 250mg i/m. These are prescription medications and you need to talk to your local practitioner for a prescription of the same.
