Chlamydia can be detected through a urine test. The test looks for the presence of Chlamydia trachomatis bacteria in the urine sample.
To perform a chlamydia urine test, you will need to collect a urine sample in a sterile container. It’s important to follow the instructions provided by the healthcare provider or testing kit.
Once the urine sample has been collected, it will be sent to a laboratory for analysis. The laboratory will use a molecular test called a nucleic acid amplification test (NAAT) to detect the genetic material of the Chlamydia trachomatis bacteria.
If the test result is positive, it means that the person has a chlamydia infection and needs to be treated with antibiotics. If the test result is negative, it means that the person does not have a chlamydia infection, but they should still practice safe sex to prevent future infections.
