Testing window

I engaged in protected sex with a csw.  At approximately the 7 day mark after exposure, I took a chlam/gonor test at Planned Parenthood and the results were negative.

Been battling my guilt since and what I presumed were faux symptoms until I started learning about testing windows.

I called PP and they said the window for Chlam is about 2 weeks.  Online I see more like 3-7 days.  Is PP just being conservative or is this test specific?

3-5 days is the real window. Up to 2 weeks is when you can see symptoms. But you never needed testing from protected sex.
