I am in my first trimester of pregnancy and I went for my first prenatal urine and blood tests. The tests came back saying I am positive for chlamydia. I knew that was not possible I have been married for 5 years and neither me or my husband has cheated, and I was tested when I had my daughter 3 years ago. The same day I made an appointment at my normal family doctor and was tested with a swab. That test came back Negative, which I knew it would. I want people to know my story because there is a chance for false positives and from what I have been reading it's more common in pregnancy. It's sad to think something like a false positive can ruin a marriage and peoples lives. I just say get a second test if you are sure there is no way you could have it.

  • Thank you for posting your story. Mine is very similar. I was tested and found to have Chlamydia which was very odd to me since I have never cheated on my boyfriend. I'm not certain if he has been unfaithful or not but his results were negative. From the outside looking in, it seems as though I got Chlamydia from someone else but there has NOT been anyone else. We were both treated anyway, but I swear something just does not seem right about my results. There is no way that I had Chlamydia prior to our relationship without knowing. I am a "health junky" and will go to see a doctor for any reason, no matter how small it may seem. Never have I been diagnosed with an STD. Relationships, marriages, and trust are ruined by these false-positive results but no one takes the blame except the person who was falsely diagnosed.:confused:
