I would have assumed your doctor gave you a diagnosis along with the medication. Did he call it a specific name such as syphilis? If not, you should ask him about this and whether or not he tested for other sexually transmitted infections. It is possible to cure some infections but still have others caused by different organisms that may not respond to these antibiotics. Most likely this infection will be cured with the treatment but I can't say what it is or whether there will be other concerns. As for long-term effects, this also depends on the infection. Some diseases do continue in the body because we do not yet have cures for all these things.
Stay in touch with your physician and ask these questions.
