I was diagnosed with Chlamydia after unprotected vaginal sex and I am under treatment of Doxybene 200mg per day for 10 days. I already feel better around the genitals and I still have 4 days to complete treatment. My question is if the particular treatment is guaranteeing me that I will be cured. I've read that it will take some days to be cured after treatment. Main reason I ask is that there is a possibility to have sex again (of course protected) in 20 days and I don't know if it will be risky and I don't know if it is a good idea for unprotected oral sex.

To sum it up: Is it safe to have oral sex and protected vaginal sex after this particular treatment and the time that passed from the treatment until the day?

Thank you in advance

Thanks for your question.
Chlamydia can not be transmitted by oral sex and thus,that is safe.
Secondly,after treatment chlamydia gets cured provided the treatment course is a complete one but With treatment, the infection should need a time to clear up in about a week or two.
I hope I was able to address your query. If you have any further problems, please do not hesitate to go to the doctor.
Wishing you all the best.
