A 38-year-old male asked:

Would a urine pcr test is sufficient for detection of chlamydia trachomatis for women or have a chance for false negative result?

Chlamydia: I know of no good provider who would use urine testing for chlamydia in women. Chlamydia infects the cervix and other vaginal tissue. It is not found normally in the bladder or urethra in women. So, a urine test in women is the incorrect test.
