There are several antibiotic treatments that effectively treat chlamydia, and your health care provider will consider your particular needs when prescribing one for you.
One of the following antibiotics is typically recommended to treat chlamydia:
Early antibiotic treatment is essential to curing chlamydia and preventing the development of long-term complications. Untreated infection may lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, scarring, and ultimately infertility.
It is extremely important that you take the full course of medication as prescribed by your health care provider. Not taking the full course of medication may cause more serious antibiotic resistance.
During treatment, sexual contact should be avoided until a post-treatment follow-up test is performed to confirm that the infection has been cured. All sexual partners must be treated as well to prevent passing the infection back and forth.
