Thank you.

I agree. You need retesting and perhaps a new course of antibiotics to eradicate the infection.

Meanwhile, plenty of liquids and vitamin C would help you.

I hope your symptoms resolve soon.

I would be happy to assist you further if you need more information.
Thanks for using JustAnswer.

Ok I have a test already, but read that doing a test too soon after having had chlamydia can make the results inconclusive ?I also by accident ordered 2 rounds of treatment so actually have a new course of antibiotics already.Would you suggest re testing and if its a positive result starting a new course?Thanks

Welcome.

Tests are always seen in the context of symptoms.

Since your symptoms have not been completely eradicated, a course of antibiotics is advised.

Ok thank you, ***** ***** test, if its positive then start the antibiotics. Thanks

Wishing you a speedy resolution and all the very best in life.

It was a pleasure to assist you.

Thank you.
