More about the Chlamydia Test
What is the chlamydia test?
The chlamydia test is called the Nucleic Acid Amplification Test (NAAT). It's the "gold standard" for chlamydia testing with superior sensitivity and specificity. Best of all, the NAAT has made it possible to test for chlamydia on a urine sample. So, there's no need for a pelvic exam or urethral swab.
Will I give blood or urine?
This test looks for signs of chlamydia in urine. At the lab, you'll give the technician a urine sample. You will not be asked to get undressed or have any uncomfortable genital swabbing.
Do I have to prep?
There's no need to fast for this test. For accuracy, please do not urinate for at least 1 hour before you go to the lab.
Tell me about the test results.
You'll learn if you are either positive or negative for chlamydia. A positive result means there is an infection. A negative means the test did not find any sign of chlamydia. Getting tested too early after a possible exposure could result in a "false negative" result. Please wait to get tested for at least 7-10 days after an encounter for the most accurate test result.
Can chlamydia be cured?
Yes, chlamydia can be cured with medication. It's possible to become re-infected with chlamydia, so it's important to take the medication as prescribed, practice safe sex and have your partner get tested and treated as well. The CDC recommends a repeat test three months after treatment to confirm that there is no re-infection.
When should I get tested for chlamydia?
For routine STD testing to know your sexual health status, test today.
It's recommended to wait 7-10 days after a possible exposure before getting a chlamydia test. If you have recently been positive for chlamydia or gonorrhea, get tested again in 3 months to make sure you haven't been re-infected.
If you haven't been tested for other STDs like HIV, hepatitis B, hepatitis C, syphilis, gonorrhea or herpes in the last year, our doctors recommend getting tested today.
