hi. I have been treated for chlamydia but during treatment I broke the rules and had sex on day 6!!! :( am I still safe or do I need to go get checked up again!!!!

Response from Dr. Hightow-Weidman

Hello there It is recommended that you wait 7 days for cure after treatment to have sex but given you were close to that my guess is that you were cured and thus posed little risk to your sex partner. However, if you had unprotected sex, you have put yourself at risk to be reinfected with Chlamydia or another std and you should get tested again. take care dr W
