Probably yes, but...: If you had symptoms at the time (usually a discharge from the penis, with or without mild discomfort urinating), and they have cleared up, probably you were cured. However, the treatments are not perfect, and everybody with chlamydia is recommended to have a follow-up lab test (urethral swab or urine) 3-6 months after treatment. Contact your doctor or clinic to arrange for testing. Good luck!
