Are Azithromycin and Doxycycline advisable for chlamydia?

Is it safe to take 1 dose of Azithromycin & 10 day dose of doxycycline being only 100lbs? They say I have chlamydia but my test results a month ago were negative also were negative 6 months ago & I have not been sexually active in 6 months. How is this possible?
