Screening and diagnosis of Chlamydia is fairly simple. There are two ways the doctor will be able to confirm a diagnosis:
Urine sample test: Your
doctor may request a special PCR
test, known as Xpert CTNG, on urine for the detection of Chlamydia infection.
Swab: For men, a slim swab will be inserted into the end of your penis to get a sample from the urethra. In some cases, your doctor may also swab the anus.
Swab: For women, your doctor may want to conduct a culture or antigen testing by taking a swab of the discharge from your cervix.
It is advised that you and your partner get re-tested 3 months after completing the course of treatment.
