How is it possible for me to get chlamydia and not my fiance? Can I go years without knowing I have it?? Does this diesease go dormant?

How is it possible for me to get chlamydia and not my fiance? Can I go years without knowing I have it?? Does this diesease go dormant?

A few possibilities: Urine tests in men miss up to 10% of infections. Chlamydia can self cure in a few weeks in men; he may have had it, now cleared. Maybe he was treated but didn't admit it. "Years" is too long, but you may have had it from a past partner and your fiance just lucky he didn't catch it from you. The test isn't perfect, small chance your result is false. The main thing now is that both need treatment. ...Read more

My partner tested positive for chlamydia and me negative. 4 years together is it possible they can go back and check if this was a false positive?

My partner tested positive for chlamydia and me negative. 4 years together is it possible they can go back and check if this was a false positive?

What type of test?: Did he get treated? It is likely that he had infection and was treated effectively and is no longer carrying the organism. He may still have antibody to chlamydia but not the organism. It would not do any harm to get retested by the Chlamydia nucleic acid. See this site for info.

I have been tested positive for chlamydia I have not cheated on my boyfriend of 2 years and he swears he's been faithful could the test be wrong?

Well..: Unless you have a previous negative test to rely on, there is no way to know when you were infected. It is often asymptomatic. The infection was acquired in one of these ways. 1) you got it from a previous or another current partner (which you say you don't have) 2) he got it from a previous or another current partner (which he says he doesn't have) You both need treatment. If doubts, retest. ...Read more

I just recently found out that I have chlamydia but me and my partner have been together for two years. We both didn't cheat ;what could have happened?

A few possibilities: Chlamydia can be carried a long time, especially in women. Two years is very long but possible. False positive results are rare, but also a possibility. Unfortunately, in most cases like this, it turns out that one or the other partner has had sex with someone else, so you'll need to have a forthright (but sensitive) discussion with your partner. He needs treatment despite his negative test. ...Read more
