A few days to never: Most women with chlamydia don't develop signs or symptoms at all. About 20-40% get vaginal discharge, discomfort on urination, spotting between periods (especially after sex), or more severe symptoms like low abdominal pain and fever. When there are symptoms, they can start anywhere from a few days to months after catching it. If you think you were exposed, don't wait for symptoms; get tested now.
