I've been with my boyfriend for almost three years. we have a son together. I have been diagnosed with chlamydia and I have only had sex with him my whole life. he has had previous partners, but got tested before we did and was negative. he hasn't tested yet but is going to. he says he hasn't cheated and I believe him, and I don't want to mess up my relationship over nothing. we ALWAYS use condoms and none have broke, is there any other way I got it? my mom was pregnant with me and had it. but she got treated before birth if that means anything
The test for chlamydia is simple. Most people can have the test carried out on a urine sample. Some people have a swab test (a small cotton bud). The swab is used to gently wipe the area where you might have chlamydia, to collect some cells. The cells are then tested for infection.resource:http://www.chlamydiacure.net/a/Chlamydia/20121106/217.html
