I’m a woman who has been diagnosed with chlamydia infection. I’ve been given azithromycin to treat my infection however the antibiotics doesn’t cure my infection. I met the doctor again after 9weeks and gave me doxycillin and metronidazole. However, it’s been a month and i still have green discharge and it means that the treatment doesn’t works with me as well. Can you give me advice of what should i do? I haven’t done sex for 4years now. Does it mean my infection cant be cured? I hope you can advices me, much appreciated thank you in advance
