  • In the United States, chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted disease.
  • Anyone who has any type of sex can become infected with chlamydia.

A chlamydia test usually involves taking some cells or fluid from the vagina, penis or anus. It may also be done by taking a urine sample.

  • You may feel some discomfort when the specimen is taken.
  • Women should empty their bladder and bowels before the examination.
  • Men should not urinate for about one hour before the test as it can wash away the bacteria.
  • Your healthcare provider will tell you if you need to stop taking any medicine before the test.

  • What is the reason for the test? Will the test results change my treatment plan? If not, do I need the test?
