How long does the chlamydia treatment take to cure????

Im 36 weeks pregnant, last week i got treated for chlamydia and im wondering how long it takes for the medicine to get the infection out before my baby is born....

I was prescribed these four pills u take as one dose (it starts with the letters "az..") and the next day i got an injection in my butt. I dont want my baby to have any problems since he'll be born any day now.... So how long does it take to get the chlamydia out when u got the injection??? Because i rather not have a c-section.

Doctors treat chlamydia with prescription antibiotics such as azithromycin (Zithromax), doxycycline or erythromycin. Your doctor usually prescribes these antibiotics as pills to be swallowed. You may be asked to take your medication in a one-time dose, or you may receive a prescription medication to be taken daily or multiple times a day for five to 10 days.

In most cases, the infection resolves within one to two weeks. During that time you should abstain from sex.

Your sexual partner or partners also need treatment even though they may not have signs or symptoms. Otherwise, the infection can be passed back and forth. It's possible to be reinfected with chlamydia.

As far as the baby goes, I think they usualy retest for the chlamydia before birth. If not and you are uncomfortable with that, just ask them. its your abby and you know whats right. ia m sure they won't have a problem doing it again. good luck and I wish you both happiness and health! :) Source(s): http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/chlamyd...
azithromyocin is what they gave you - along with another anti - but you do not know what the name is i am guessing. you need to be on the treatment for at least 4 days before he is born. Once he is born they will put antibiotic in his eyes and test him for possible contamination and possibly treat him. if you are 36 you have just hit full term but you can go to 40+ weeks as long as you both are fine.
Chlamydia - Treatment Overview
Chlamydia can be cured with antibiotics. The disease does not cause long-term problems if it is treated early. Untreated chlamydia can lead to many complications.

Treatment is recommended for:

People who have positive chlamydia tests.
Sex partners within the last 60 days of people diagnosed with chlamydia-even if they do not have symptoms.
Newborns of women who have chlamydia at the time of delivery.
It is important to not have sex for 7 days after treatment for chlamydia.

If you are treated for chlamydia and your sex partner is not, you will probably become infected again. Encourage your partner to get treated. Use condoms to lower the chance of reinfection.

What To Think About
Some people who have chlamydia may also have gonorrhea. In that case, treatment includes antibiotics that kill both chlamydia and gonorrhea. For more information, see the topic Gonorrhea.

Reinfection can occur. Symptoms that continue after treatment are probably caused by another chlamydia infection rather than treatment failure. To prevent reinfection, sex partners need to be evaluated and treated.

Repeated chlamydia infections increase the risk for pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). Even one infection can lead to PID without proper treatment. Make sure to take your antibiotics exactly as prescribed. Take the full course of medicine, even if you feel better in a couple of days.

Some health professionals recommend retesting 3 to 12 months after treatment to reduce the risk of complications from reinfection.3

If you have chlamydia, your health professional will send a report to the state health department. Your personal information is kept confidential. The health department may contact you about telling your sex partner or partners that they may need treatment.
