If I do have chlamydia. I have only had sex with one girl for the past 6 months. Would it have to be from her?

If so, why hasnt the chlamydia showed up before in the past 6 months.

I thought you have a reaction or you dont.

Clamydia is known as the slient STD for it's lack of symptoms. No one here can tell who you got it from.

Well i thought you usually just go back over the past 2 months. Usually you have to get in within 2 months and show symptoms.

If you are going to show symptoms, do you normally have to have burning pee and discharge out of the penis to have chlamydia?

Because i just have hurting testicals and lower abdomen pain.

Why not go to a Dr for STD testing? They can tell you if you have it or not. Not sure what this magical 2 month mark you speak of? Someone can have an STD for years, YEARS and not even know it. That is why I say go and be tested and you will know for sure.

I know i did i am waiting for the results. I know you can have the STD for a long time. But I thought if you were going to show symptoms of chlamydia it would be pretty within a 7-21 days of receiving it.

Chlamydia is one of the most commonly tested for STD. Chlamydia can be present without any symptoms, so you need to get tested to know if you have it. A Chlamydia test usually requires only a urine sample.

If left untreated, Chlamydia can lead to a serious infection that spreads further into your body and can make you very sick.
