Hello and thanks for trusting me to help you. I am a board certified consultant with over 30 years of experience.
I understand your concern.

Keflex has less effect against chlamydia.

Chlamydia is treated with either a single dose of azithromycin or a week of doxycycline. These are the 2 recommended medications for this type of infection.

You should discuss it with your doctor and add other antibiotic to treat chlamydia infection also.

In the meantime do safe sex practices.
