How long before a positive test?

I had unprotected sex on May 7 and went the Dr on May 21 he took blood and urine culture.  Would Chlamydia show up that early?   If I test negative now could I test positive later?

He put me on Zithromax in case I was positive.

Chlamydia and gonorrhea tests are accurate at about 3-5 days, so your test 14 days later will be accurate.

Recently I have had pain in the tip to about 1 inch back from the head
of my penis but only when erect. When I'm flaccid the pain isn't there. About 2 Months prior, I recieved oral sex and and had unprotected sex once.  I've had a urine and blood woorkup done which was negative. Would you suggest I have a Cystoscopy done, or give it a little more time to see if it improves? My biggest fear is that it might be cancer
somewhere in the urineary tract... Your educated input would be greatly
appreciated..... Thank You,,,,,Mr. D
