If you are being treated for chlamydia, it is important that you notify your partner so they can get tested and treated. If you have a partner that may not seek treatment, talk to your doctor about expedited partner therapy (EPT). If your state and doctor support EPT, you may be given a prescription to give to your partner.
You can prevent spreading the infection to others. Don't have any sexual contact with a partner for at least seven days after your infection is treated. Also, do not have sex with your partner until 7 days after they are treated.
You should return three months after treatment to be retested. You should return sooner if your symptoms do not go away or if your symptoms return.
