How is chlamydia diagnosed in throat

I know it is rare to have chlamydia in the throat, but I am curious as to if this shows on urine tests or if it can be transferred from throat the genitals through oral?

This discussion is related to Chlamydia of the Throat diagnosis.

you tried to post on someone else's post on the std experts forum so it was bumped over to here.

no, an oral chlamydia infection won't be detected on urine tests. it would involve an oral swab to be done.

If someone has had oral sex with someone with it, and then normal sex with them, would they end up with it in both areas?
