About the Test

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. It is one of the most common STIs, and can infect the cervix, urethra, rectum, and throat.

In many cases, Chlamydia has no symptoms, so people can be infected and spread the disease without knowing it. When symptoms do occur, they may appear 1-3 weeks after exposure and can include:

  • Painful urination
  • Abnormal discharge from the vagina or penis
  • Pain or bleeding during sex (in women)
  • Lower abdominal pain (in women)
  • Rectal pain, discharge, or bleeding (in men who have sex with men)
  • Painful or swollen testicles (in men)
  • Sore throat (in people who have oral sex)

Chlamydia

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. It is one of the most common STIs, and can infect the cervix, urethra, rectum, and throat.

In many cases, Chlamydia has no symptoms, so people can be infected and spread the disease without knowing it. When symptoms do occur, they may appear 1-3 weeks after exposure and can include:

  • Pain or bleeding during sex (in women)

  • Rectal pain, discharge, or bleeding (in men who have sex with men)
  • Painful or swollen testicles (in men)
  • Sore throat (in people who have oral sex)

Chlamydia can be diagnosed with a urine test or a swab from the infected area. It is easily treated with antibiotics, but if left untreated, it can cause serious health problems, such as pelvic inflammatory disease, infertility, and ectopic pregnancy in women, and epididymitis in men.

To prevent the spread of Chlamydia and other STIs, it is important to practice safe sex by using condoms or other forms of barrier protection and to get tested regularly if you are sexually active. If you think you may have Chlamydia, it is important to see a healthcare provider for evaluation and treatment.
