I found out that I had clamydia a week and a half ago. I have only slept with one man and he is my boyfriend. Now when I told him to go get checked, he didnt, saying that nothing was wrong with him. I explained to him that 1 out of 2 men will not show any signs of having clamydia and he still needed to get checked.He finally goes to get checked and when I questioned him about it he said that the doctor said that he didnt have clamydia and that they gave him a prescription and sent him home. I asked him did he get his results the same day and he said yes. Is this possible? How is it possible that I got clamydia and he didnt and he is the only guy I have been with? How long does it normally take to get results back?

I think it depends on the type of test and how busy the lab is that your provider uses.  How did you find out you had chlamydia?  Did you have symptoms or was it from your routine pap?  

You should make sure you use protection when having sex with him if you do not trust that he did get tested and treated.  Ask him what they gave him for treatment or to see the results.  You do not want to keep getting reinfected.  This is serious if it goes untreated.  

Here is a link to what can happen to women AND men if chlamydia goes untreated:

http://www.cdc.gov/std/chlamydia/STDFact-Chlamydia.htm#complications

have him read that or read it to him.  Maybe he will be scared into making sure he gets tested properly.  I'm sure it is possible to get same day results but how accurate the test is that allows for that, I don't know.  To me it sounds like he just told you that to get you to drop it.  I hope he told the truth but your instincts tell you something different...

I have conducted a lot of research on this topic. If he is the only person you have had sexual intercourse with, he is the one who passed it on to you. This said, he will keep re-infecting you over & over if you allow it. Follow the instructions from 2terrified.

Maybe, MAYBE it was a false positive? Did you go get yourself re-checked?

Sorry,  but your bf is mistaken. If anything, they gave him the test and told him results will be back in a few days to a week. Just in case, they gave him meds for it to stop him from carrying if he is. Lady,  all I can say us you need to have the talk with your bf. The "are we exclusive talk". Chances are, if he wasn't honest about a test, he will tell you that there's no one else. My advice to you,  is to force him to wear protection and don't do ANY oral or anal. Think about your health. Be safe lady.

I had to wait two weeks also to get results for that test. The only test that come out in a couple days is HIV and some std's. The lab told me chlyamidia takes 2WEEKS...
