I was just diagnosed with Chlamydia after testing negative for it in January. I have been dating my boyfriend for a year and half and like I said I was chlamydia free in January after we started dating. He told me he did not cheat and neither did I. Is there anyway that a test taken in January could be inaccurate?

What are the symptoms? Horrible abdominal pain?

  • Hi... I have the same problem... About a month ago, I went 2 the obgyn because I had pain during urination and I had this burning discharge... I was diagnosed with bacterial vaginosis... I took the medication and I thought everything was fine but I was sadly mistaken... Just monday I was rushed into the ER because I had severe lower abdominal pain and I was told I have a large cyst on my right ovary that has ruptured... I told the doctor that I have excessive vaginal discharge and he said that maybe the infection came back so he put me on the same antibiotics as b4... Then he called me 2day and said I have Chlamydia... How can that be when my obgyn said I didn't have it the 1st time and I haven't been sexually active since then... Could this be a wrong diagnosis? Symptoms or chlamydia: yellowish, mucus like discharge, and pain during urination but some people don't experience any symptoms... It can also cause lower abdominal pain... If anyone knows any helpful information, please respond asap... Thanks...

  • Chlamydia is the most common STD in the United States. It is treatable, but you can get it from intercourse or foreplay. It comes from blood and body fluids, and condoms doesn't prevent it. Women need to get this treated before children, b/c it can cause blindness in newborns if left untreated. Men, sometimes there are hardley no symptoms until late. Chlamydia is tricky, please get checked out, and stay away from anyone else so you dont' transmit it to them for there respect. God Bless

  • Chlamydia often causes no symptoms and i don't think the initial tests would miss it. You see, first they test for elevated white blood cells that indicates infection and then they test for a specific condition...but it may not be the same in all countries. I would say to have another test and if it shows up positive, you need to have a long talk with your boyfriend and tell him and the only way to spread the bacteria is by sex and you know you haven't had it with anyone else.
