It seems there's a lot of confusion about test procedures for chlamydia. The best way to test is by taking a swab and/or urine test. Blood test may or maynot pick up chlamydia and there seems to be a lot of false positive readings via blood tests. Any thoughts from you guys?

I had the swab done. Hurt quite a bit. But, my doc said it was more accurate than the urine test. Although they say it is hard to grow Chlamydia so it takes a day or two to get the results. If you have pain, they'll start you on meds right away.
