STDs & pelvic pain : Abdominal pain has many causes, and chlamydia has many different manifestations. You received a proper treatment, but that doesn't prove "cure." a vaginal chlamydia culture to look for treatment failure, an exam by a good doctor, and an ultrasound of the pelvis (if desired by your doc) are good ways to go.

Pain after tx: It's unlikely the test was worng - not impossible, but very unlikely. As to whether you still have it, chlamydia symptoms can range from none to severe pain/fever/illness. So the leftover pain may be peristent infection, or just inflamation in the area where the infection was. That inflammation takes time to clear up after the infection is treated. I would ask doc if need to be tested for cure.
