Chlamydia-Should you re-test after treatment?

Hi,

About a month ago I found out I had chlamydia so the nurse at the STD center gave me a 7 day dose of doxy....somethin. Not sure what its called off the top of my head. About 3 days after I finished treatment I called the place I tested at to schedule another STD test just to make sure it was gone and the nurse recommended that I don't re-test which i thought was odd. Now been a couple weeks since then. Anyone with chlamydia, have you re-tested after treatment or just assumed it was gone?

I think you have every right to be suspicious ... I had Chlamyida last August and was told to come back for a re-test one week after taking my meds. Although it is more likely you'll test negative than positive, there is still a chance it didn't go away.
Since Chlamydia can lead to PID and cause infertility if left untreated, I feel it's better to take the test again and be sure, than not take it and be sorry later down the road.
