In brief: Testing

Chlamydia tests include a culture that may take 5 to 7 days to grow.
A direct fluorescent antibody test looks for antigens. A nucleic acid hybridization test or a nucleic acid amplification test looks for chlamydia dna &enzyme –linked immunosorbent assay. Directing sampling uses fluids from cervix, urethra throat, eye (whichever area is impacted). Urine testing is also possible.
