I was diagnosed with rectal chlamydia recently, and was hoping someone can answer my question regarding chlamydia testing. Long story short, I had a general STD checkup (minus the rectal swab) early this year(Feb) that came up with all clear results. About a week ago I had a rectal swab test done that came back positive with rectal chlamydia. I had sex with only 2 different people this year, starting about 4 month after the February STD checkup. So I was wondering, could the regular chlamydia test done in the winter, have missed the rectal chlamydia? or Is it clear that I caught rectal chlamydia after having sex with those two individuals post February STD checkup?
Any sort of help is greatly appreciated.
