For Chlamydia we offer the same treatment that you would receive from a sexual health clinic or your G.P.
We offer either a single dose of Azithromycin or a week long course of Doxycycline .
Both treatments may produce side effects, the most common being gastro-intestinal, such as nausea, diarrhoea and stomach ache. You may also get a rash with Doxycycline if you are exposed to too much sunlight.
For Chlamydia you can choose which treatment you would prefer or is more suitable for you, (Azithromycin or Doxycycline) and then complete the appropriate medical questionnaire.
You should not resume sexual activity (including genital, oral or anal sex), until 7 days after you have finished your treatment or received a negative test result. This applies to both the single dose treatment with Azithromycin and the longer course of Doxycycline. Otherwise there is a high risk of re-infecting yourself or passing on the infection to your partner.
We advise under 25s to re-test for Chlamydia 3 months after treatment due to high rates of re-infection.
