I am 21. I have regular period every 15th of the month. Slight moods swings that I have noticed lately, my last menstrual was August 15th to 17th
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Anil Kumar, Doctor replied 11 months ago

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

Well as you describe, while antibiotics wouldn't cause a missed period, the stress of being ill on the body can lead to missed period.

As such there can be a other variety of causes of missed period like hormonal imbalance, weight gain, weight loss,PCOD,thyroid dysfunction.

So if you'll not get period in next few days then see your gyn doctor and your doctor may advise some form of progesterone to induce period and further investigations like ultrasound ,blood work like Thyroid function test, LH ,FSH etc may be advised for further diagnosis and management.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.

How long does the chlamydia take to be out of the system with a 1 dose treatment of antibiotics?
OB GYN Doctor: Dr Anil Kumar, Doctor replied 11 months ago

The symptoms that are due to chlamydia will usually be much improved within 2-3 days after the treatment. However, it may take 5-7 days for the symptoms to completely resolve.

If symptoms persist beyond this period of time, then there should be consideration of whether there is a resistant form of the germ.

Single dose treatment is generally very effective, but it is not 100% effective; the overall success rate is ~97-98%. Therefore, persistent symptoms my indicate that another course of antibiotics is necessary.

Hope this helps.
