A 36-year-old male asked:
how sensitive is a urine test for chlamydia? if someone was exposed 17 hours earlier through unprotected vaginal sex, would a urine test work?

Maybe: It should pick up this std but i would wait about a week and then get it checked out. A vaginal culture may also help in the diagnosis.
