Our doctors test for chlamydia using the FDA-approved Nucleic Acid Amplification (NAA) test. It is currently the most accurate chlamydia test available on the market. The NAA test looks for the Chlamydia trachomatis bacterium in urine. Our chlamydia test doesn't require swabbing or undressing and takes only a few minutes to complete. Results are delivered in 1-2 days.
All laboratory testing, including STD tests, accuracy rates are measured in terms of sensitivity and specificity. Our FDA-approved chlamydia test has a sensitivity rate of 99.8% and a specificity of 99.3%.
Our labs conduct each chlamydia test using a urine sample. When you arrive at the testing center you will only need to provide a urine sample. There is no swabbing or undressing necessary.
Please abstain from urinating for at least an hour prior to taking your chlamydia test. Otherwise, no other preparation is required.
If you are concerned about a possible chlamydia infection, the ideal time to get tested is a minimum of 1-5 days after exposure. In other words, wait at least 24 hours after possible exposure before you take the test. Individuals who have been treated for chlamydia should test again 21 to 28 days after treatment to ensure that the bacterium has cleared.
If your results are negative, then no signs of chlamydia are present in your system. A positive result means chlamydia was found. It is possible to test too early after being exposed to chlamydia infection. Our doctors recommend waiting 1-5 days for reliable results.
Yes, chlamydia is curable and can be treated with antibiotics. If necessary, our doctors will provide a consultation over the phone and, at their discretion, can prescribe antibiotics to be picked up at a nearby pharmacy.
Men and women alike are susceptible to contracting chlamydia. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), there are nearly 3 million new chlamydia infections annually in the United States. Two of the main reasons for this trend is that chlamydia comes with no symptoms and it spreads easily. Therefore, the best way to ensure your sexual health is to get tested. In particular, the CDC recommends chlamydia testing for all sexually active women 25 years old or younger. You should also consider chlamydia testing if you have had unprotected sex with a partner whose STD status you do not know or are uncertain about.
Now is the best time to test for chlamydia. Know your sexual health status today.
The best time to test for chlamydia is 1-5 days after initial exposure. This means if you believe you may be positive for chlamydia, wait a few days, then test for the infection. Our doctors recommend testing again at 21 to 28 days after treatment to make sure that the infection has cleared.
Also if you have not been tested for other STDs like gonorrhea, syphilis, HIV-1, HIV-2, hepatitis A, B and C or herpes 1 and 2 in the last year, our doctors recommend taking the all-inclusive 10 Test Panel testing to ensure that you are completely STD free.
We also offer the chlamydia-gonorrhea test panel. Chlamydia and gonorrhea are known as co-existing infections, meaning that having one infection may put you at risk of having the other.
