Is my STI treatment not working?

I am a 46 year old male and am in good health and 3 weeks ago I had unprotected sex with a girl I've being seeing on and off for a year. She swore to me that she was clean of anything and I know was clean so I didnt think twice. About 4 days later I noticed some discharge from my penis, it was yellowish in color but did not smell. I had no burning while urinating but I did have what I could only describe as an itchy feeling afterwards. As I get an occasional UTI from dehydration and a history of kidney stones, I chalked it up to another UTI and called my doctor for an appointment so I could get checked out. Unluckily my doctor is out of town for about 2 weeks. I left a message for the service but in the meantime, the discharge was getting worse and not consistent with what I experienced in the past. I've never had an STI before but I suspected one now. After work I went to a local testing center and gave them a sample of urine and blood in order to get tested. They gave me a three day supply of Cipro and said the results would be back in 2 days, that being Saturday.

I called Saturday for the results and they weren't in yet and I had run out of my Cipro and my symptoms were not getting any better, just worse. Monday finally came and the test showed negative for everything except being positive for chlamydia. I was given 2grams of azithromycin as treatment. I took the pills that night and the itching feeling went away in a few days. The discharge did not. It took a week and a half for the discharge to stop. This past weekend, the discharge returned after I had protected sex with the same girl. She had taken a doxycycline regimen after I told her the results came back positive. We did have unprotected oral sex however.

I was thinking I got reinfected with chlamydia and called the clinic that did the testing. They said it was unlikely if she had the treatment and it was 2 weeks after she completed the treatment. The results ended up being positive and instead it was an infection and they gave her 2grams of metronidazole and said no alcohol. They said this should work in about 2 days otherwise I need to see a urologist. My concern is whether the correct treatment was given for the chlymadia and whether my body may have rejected the treatment or maybe it was reinfection. I also read that sometimes the chlamydia attacks the prostate. I'd like to get tested again, but I've read its too early and the results would not be reliable. If someone can give me some insight into this, I'd greatly appreciate it.

This can have many outcomes.
This can have many outcomes. What seems to be the most plausible answer to this is that your body may not have adapted to the first treatment. There is a reason why there are so many different kinds of treatments because not all bodies are compatible with the same treatment. My advice would be to just change your treatment and see if that helps.
