What does the chlamydia test involve?

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. The doctor or nurse will explain which is the best test for you to have. You don't always have to be examined by the doctor or nurse – this will depend on your situation and where you go to get tested. People who have had anal or oral sex might have a swab taken from their rectum or throat. This isn't done on everyone. If you have symptoms in your eye, such as discharge or inflammation, a swab test might be taken to collect cells from your eyelid.
