chlamydia test results confused ?

well here goes i am undergoin fertility treatment for pcos on clomid and metformin and as part of the sub fertilty test i had a infections test, hospital says there was no growth but said something about high white blood count, with this i phoned doctor to explain and he said that my blood test i had done for my infections test showed up chlamydia came up positive and put me on a 7 days course of antibotics but i am confused as a couple of days b4 i had a urine sample sent of for a msu test and they found no infections but surely it would of shown up in my urine sample if i had somethin wrong but now blood test shows 1.024 which apparently high but not higher doctors says not to worry as he has seen higher so am i takin these tablets for no reason or are the results correct as i had had several miscarriages because of pcos and everytime i have had a scan hospital says there are no abnormalitys with my womb so can anyone explain to me when or where this has come from i have been with my partner for 6 years i figured if i have had it all this time my results would off been higher ?? but i have no symptons,

Whew , slow down. You gave a lot of incomplete information in that hard to read single paragraph. Now, what was the infections test you reffered to ? Was it a urine culture ? Was the high white blood cell count on the urine or on the blood ? I can tell you that the blood tests for Chlamydia should not have been done because of false positives and cross reactivity with other Chlamydia . The best test for Chlamydia is an endocervical swab for the Gen-probe test or a first morning urine for the NAAT test. I am not sure what you mean by the blood test of !.024, you may need to clarify that for me. The 1.024 sounds like a urine specific gravity result. The 1.024 would be a slightly concentrated urine. If you could give us more information, we could give you a better answer. Take care.

hi sorry i just all confused i had a blood test done to check for infections. the results came back 1.024 and doctor said it was a positive chlamydia test but last week i have a urine sample test done because i had slight burning in my wee but after a couple off hours of drinkin lots of fluid it passed but to be on the safe side the doctor send my urine sample of for a msu and the results came back on that monday this week and they said there was no infections in my urine, so i am confused as to wether i actually have chlamydia because hospital said something about a high white bloood count and there was no growth of somethin so that why they got the doctor to phone me up he said chlamydia test was positive but i have no symptons at all the only time i get adominal (abdominal) pains is before i come on no other time i have told my husband i have been tested because we are both undergoin fertilty treatment as i have pcos i no doctors are meant to know what there on about but i just have a feelin this resluts are wrong i did not think that u could test for chlamydia via a blood test ?? please advise as i really am so upset as i have been faithful to my husband i have been with him for 6 years and i am sure if i had it before i got with him i would off been very ill by now surely ??

Well, it sounds as if the blood test showed a past chlamydia infection of some kind - and there are lots of chlamydia bacteria that could be causing this.

If your urine test was negative, then you don't have a CURRENT genital chlamydia infection.

I also agree that you would have been very sick long before 6 years if you had an untreated chlamydia infection for that long.

You should know more when your husband's tests come back.

thanxs for the info but i am sure its not a past infection as like u said i would off been very ill, so i am thinkin its a recent one as i have never been check for chlamydia before as i have not had lots of sexual partners and my previous partners all have gone to have kids so if i had it and infected them surely they would not have had children ? do u think that its possible i caught it from my husband in the last 6 years and not known about it until now as he has only been with 2 people previous to me so could he   had caught it and not known about it. as we are trying for a child after he has been treated if hes got it. it will be ok to have unprotected sex wouldnt it as we both want a family and i am on tablets to help me ovualate but i have to stop takin the clomid whilst i am on the antibotics.

Ok, here are my suggestions. Have your husband tested with a first morning urine screen. You go for a pap smear and have your Doctor perform a cervical swab test with the Genprobe test. That will answer your questions. I still feel that you do not have a current infection, and the blood screen for Chlamydia has confused you. It really does not give you the proper information. Hope this helps. Take care.

Right - I was wondering if you had a past chlamydia infection - and chlamydia can cause many things, and its not all genital, for example, there is a chlamydia pneumonia bacteria, and that's what this is picking up.

Dallas gave you some good info.

thanxs for the information whats a pap smear i did  swob test nov last year and it was neagative. i just am so confused as to how i got it i have read up on the chlamydia pneumonia bacteria and i do get alot off colds and i have had border line pneumonia about 2 years ago and i have had a few chest infections but surely this could not cause a positive chlamydia result now ? thanxs for ur information though as it helps to talk about it as my urine sample always comes back negative for a msu test.

Hi there -

You want specifics we can't give you.  I don't know if it was a false positive, or not.  If you are testing negative with swab and urine tests, it has to be either an old infection or a false positive.

I don't know anything about the blood tests because they should only be done during fertility work ups, and I don't work in that field.  :(

Maybe post in women's health?
