How long can it take for Chlamydia to test positive? Is it possible to have Chlamydia and test negative a few weeks after possible exposure?

it actually only take a day for it to become positive after an infection, but we say 7 days post to be safe. ... if you had it you would have had a positive result if you tested a few weeks after an exposure.

How is it tested? I'm pretty sure my Dr. did not send a smear of the discharge off. She told me the pap smear would check for it. Everything I've read online says it does not check for Chlamydia.

when a pap is done they will also do a culture for chlamydia and gonorrhea. It is not the actual smear from the pap that test for it but a separate culture. Most of all GYN's now do that as apart of a normal routine pap.
