HI, thanks for using healthcare magic

Normally with chlamydia, the partner needs to be treated as well. If this has not be done, this may be the reason for the repeated infection.

If your partner has been treated but your infection in still recurring, it is possible that it is not being adequately treated with the medication that you are using. It may be resistant to that therapy.

Your doctor may need to look into other antibiotic options.

I hope this helps
