Why has my chlamidya not gone??

So 6 weeks ago I tested positive for chlamidya infection, I took the azithromycin 4 tablets, abstained from sex and my boyfriend did the same...
Yet here i am 6 weeks later and i've just retested positive again??!
I'm really upset and worried about why the treatment didn't work for me the first time.

Any words of advice or an explaination would be much appreciated!

It seems like it did not work, might need a longer dose or something else.

It is recommended not to retest until 3 months after a positive result. The test may be just picking up dead chlamydia cells
