Being diagnosed with chlamydia can be both emotionally and practically challenging. Listening to others who have experienced similar situations is often re-assuring and can be helpful for you, your loved ones or when preparing questions for your doctor or a specialist.
Chloe’s chlamydia test was prompted by a phone call from her ex-boyfriend telling her that he was being treated for chlamydia and that she and her new boyfriend should go to get tested. However, Chloe had the chlamydia test and requested treatment before she got the test result. She and her boyfriend used a chlamydia testing kit to have a second test, which came back negative for both of them.
