Chlamydia is one of the most common STDs in the United States. If left untreated, chlamydia may also lead to pelvic inflammatory disease and increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy. Chlamydia is both treatable and preventable.
A urine test is the easiest way to detect chlamydia, but women have a couple of other options. You can also have your health care provider do a cervical swab test, or you can do a vaginal swab, which can be provided by your provider.
It depends on the lab used by your health care provider, but usually a couple of days to a week.
