Can I have sex with a condom while I’m on the antibiotics for having cylmdia

If you’re being treated for chlamydia, it’s important to avoid sex until 7 days after finishing your medicine. This gives your body time to clear up the infection completely to make sure it doesn’t get passed on to anyone.

If you’ve been having sex with the same person for a while, it’s a good idea for them to get tested for chlamydia, too, and for you both to wait until you’re done with your antibiotics before having sex again. Otherwise, you could keep passing it back and forth.

Antibiotics are reliable when it comes to kicking chlamydia’s you-know-what, but it’s still a good idea to get tested again in a few months to make sure your chlamydia is gone.
