This is Dr. David

I am sorry you have chlamydia vaginal infection. there are many different antibiotics which can be used to treat this infection.

http://www.cdc.gov/std/tg2015/chlamydia.htm

these are the recommended treatment regimens for chlamydia vaginal infections from the CDC Centers for Disease Control

Recommended Regimens

Azithromycin 1 g orally in a single dose OR

Doxycycline 100 mg orally twice a day for 7 days

Alternative Regimens

Erythromycin base 500 mg orally four times a day for 7 days OR

Erythromycin ethylsuccinate 800 mg orally four times a day for 7 days OR

Levofloxacin 500 mg orally once daily for 7 days OR

Ofloxacin 300 mg orally twice a day for 7 days

it doesn't seem like you need antibiotics for 2 weeks.

you can be treated in one day with one day oral of azithromycin

your doctor should give you either azithromycin for one day or doxycycine for 7 days. these are the recommended treatment regimens.

let me know if you have other questions.

since your doctor has already given you a prescription for ofloxacin 300mg, you can use that twice a day for 7 days and be done

that is another option.

talk to your doctor about these recommended antibiotic regimens for chlamydia infection
