Hi, would it be a bad idea to start taking medication for gonorrhoea and chlamydia when it's only been 4/5 days since possible infection but I have some signs? will i cause myself any harm if i start treating myself before i get my results back as i need to be clear as soon as possible

    No harm can be done... you will simply take antibiotics for nothing if it's negative...

      If you are positive, taking the medication right away will start healing you. I don't think you'll be more resistance to the medication in a week... taking too much antibiotics is not good in the the long term but one time can't do that much harm.

      It would be better to wait for the result but it's your choice.
