Trust positive test: If u had cervical swab positive for chlamydia, I would trust that result, and not have done confirmatory tests which may have not been collected properly. The risk of untreated Chlamydia far outweighs the risk of side-effects from treatment. Make sure your partner(s) get tested and treated, and do not resume sex with them until at least 7 days after u both have been treated. Use condoms.
