Hi, i am confused. My chlamydia test show IgG positive but IgM negative. My partner is oposit, he is IgG negative but IgM positive! Do i have chronic chlamydia and gave it to him? Or he just get new infection and i didnt get it from him by some wonder?! P
Be careful: Interpret these tests with caution. Chlamydia (I'm assuming C trachomatis) can live within epithelial cells and thus masks itself from the immune system. If you were never treated, then I would suspect chronic carriage or reservoir state. Your husbands IgM indicates new antibody response and is consistent with recent contraction, possibly from you. Also maybe past exposure for you and unrelated ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
June last year I was tested negative for chlamydia (PCR). 2 weeks ago I got IgG positive, IgM negative. Does that mean I was infected in the meantime?
Chlamydia antibody: Your blood test results are consistent with your past chlamydial infection. However, the blood test only detects antibody (the immune response to infection), not chlamydia itself. Once positive, the IgG blood test is positive for many years, often for life. To know if you currently have chlamydia, you'll need another PCR-type test from the vagina or a urine specimen. ...Read more

Can LGV Chlamydia be detected by the Quest lab antibody test that checks for L2 igM igA igG for C. Trachamatis. Is this accur. For LGV at 5 months. ?
Accurate, but why?: Lymphogranuloma venereum (LGV) is caused primarily by a particular type of chlamydia, called L2. The Quest test is very accurate; a negative result 5 months after exposure or possible symptoms is strong evidence against LGV. But why be tested? Symptoms? Partner w/ possible LGV? In the US, LGV occurs almost entirely in gay men; there have been few or no cases in women for the past half century. ...Read more
Recently I had anti chlamydia IgG positive and IgM negative. How is that so as I have never tested for STD before and hence never had any treatment?
Unreliable test: Chlamydia blood tests are not very reliable. Your result suggests possible past infection but none at present. Some positive tests are due not to chlamydia, but past infection with chlamydia-like bacteria that cause bronchitis. If you are being evaluated for infertility, your doctor might treat you with an anti-chlamydia antibiotic. Otherwise, probably nothing need be done. Discuss with doctor. ...Read more
Is two weeks after sex encounter good enough for test results to be accurate on STD panel of chlamydia herpes syphilis etc?
13Days after sex if i test for a 10 panel STD test of chlamydia gonorea syphilis etc will test results be acurate ?
No.: How will you be testing for these agents? Some require culture, some depend on antibody production, some use DNA technology. Tests dependent on antibody production are not likely to turn positive in two weeks. It would be preferable to see your doctor for the correct choice of tests. ...Read more
