No it should not be any harder to treat than any other infection. If you have taken antibiotics since you had it though there will be more resistance to over come as the bacteria that was able to be killed by that antibiotic died, but the ones that survived likely developed resistance. However assuming no other antibiotics have been used in that time frame, it'll just likely take a little longer on the treatment due to there being more organisms. Nothing major.

It shouldn't be. Antibiotics can get rid of it. The problem comes if you develop complications. Women can get pelvic inflammatory disease and this can lead to infertility if not treated. Men can get epididymitis. Your sexual partners should be treated too.
