Taking doxycycline

hello, I found out recently that I have chlamydia and so started the treatment just a few days ago, which is doxycycline.

Question is, can I still have sex with my partner using condoms? The reason why I am asking is because everywhere I read about chlamydia it recommends no sex during the treatment period.

try not to because you never know the condom could break etc so you’d still be at risk of infection !

wait until you've finished the course of the medication as its abit risky think if it was the other way around would you have sex with someone with a sti even if they use a condom??? Unless you've discussed this with the person your going to have sex with and told them you have chlamydia and they are ok about it

No sex is recommended as peoples condom use varies and as the other posters mention breakages do.occur requiring re-treatment . Partner should also have been screened treated and advised no sex also.
