With treatment 7 day: With treatment it takes at least 7 days and you are adviced not to have sex during that period. And your sex partners need to be treated as well to prevent recurrences.
About 7 days: It takes 7 days after the treatment to be cured and you can resume sex, as long as both partners are treated. Otherwise the recurrences may happen.
Unfortunately years: Chlamydia can actually be present, cause pelvic infections, sterility, and adhesive disease...Years before it's discovered. This is why we screen all women yearly in their reproductive years to hopefully catch it before it causes damage. Good question.
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.

Chlamydia: Very soon depending upon the particular test ordered and the lab to which it was sent. One day is not unusual.
