Recent patient review

From the time my husband and I walked through the door, I felt well cared for. I had fallen and hit my head. The young woman at the check-in desk had a welcoming smile, only asked a few questions and suggested I sit down. If she needed any more info she would come to me. The young woman who cleaned up my cuts and abrasions had a gentle touch. I'm sorry I don't have their names. Ashlee Reetz stitched and bandaged my various wounds. She answered my questions, checked me for a possible concussion, with professionalism and pleasant attitude. My husband and I were so pleased with the care in your facility. I was there around 12:30 p.m. on Wednesday, January 2nd.

Chlamydia Test FAQs

  • What is a chlamydia test?

    A chlamydia test is an STD test that can determine whether or not you have chlamydia. It can be done as a urine test or a swab test, according to the NIH, though the swab test is usually only done on women. A chlamydia test is available from many healthcare professionals who provide lab test services.

  • What is chlamydia testing used for?

    According to the National Institutes of Health, a chlamydia test is used to determine the presence of chlamydia bacteria in the body. Even if you don't have any symptoms, it can be used to confirm whether you have chlamydia. Chlamydia symptoms include pain when peeing and frequent urine, according to the National Institutes of Health. In women, it can cause abnormal vaginal bleeding, while in men, it can induce discharge from the penis.

  • Why do I need a chlamydia test?

    A chlamydia test can tell you if you have the STD and help you avoid spreading it to others. The National Institutes of Health recommends yearly chlamydia tests for sexually active women under the age of 25, males who have sex with men, HIV patients, and pregnant women under the age of 25. This STD test is especially advised for women over 25 who have had several sex partners and whose partners have used condoms incorrectly or inconsistently.

  • What happens during a chlamydia test?

    The chlamydia test provider will ask you to urinate into a sterile collecting cup during the urine test, according to the National Institutes of Health. The presence of chlamydia germs in your urine sample is checked by lab technicians. During a pelvic exam, a healthcare provider will use a swab or brush to capture a sample of cells, according to the National Institutes of Health. The sample is subsequently sent to a laboratory for analysis.

  • Will I need to do anything to prepare for the test?

    According to the National Institutes of Health, lab test providers may encourage women who are having a chlamydia test to refrain from using vaginal douches or lotions for at least 24 hours before the test. Men and women may also be requested to refrain from taking antibiotics for at least 24 hours prior to the STD test.

  • How long does it take for chlamydia to show up?

    According to the University of Wisconsin, chlamydia symptoms normally appear one to three weeks following exposure to the infection. However, according to the university, 75 percent of women and 50 percent of men with chlamydia have no symptoms. The only method to know if you have chlamydia is to take a chlamydia test from an STD testing center.According to the University of Wisconsin, chlamydia symptoms normally appear one to three weeks following exposure to the infection.

  • How long will I test positive for chlamydia after treatment?

    After you've finished treatment, you shouldn't test positive for chlamydia anymore. Chlamydia can be successfully treated with azithromycin or doxycycline, according to the University of Rochester Medical Center. People with lymphogranuloma venereum, a kind of chlamydia, may require 21 days of treatment, according to the University of Rochester Medical Center. Furthermore, the institution advises abstaining from all sexual activity for at least seven days or until chlamydia therapy is completed.

  • Where can I get a chlamydia test in Iowa?

    Many healthcare providers that offer lab tests and STD testing services, such as hospitals, urgent care centers, and walk-in clinics, offer a chlamydia test. One of the simplest and most convenient ways to find chlamydia test providers in your neighborhood is to use Solv. To find top-rated providers and make an appointment online, type "chlamydia test" or "STD testing" into the search area on Solv's website, then input your location.

Iowa ChlamydiaTesting

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) that can affect men and women alike. Chlamydia is one of the most frequent STDs, according to the National Institutes of Health (NIH).

Chlamydia is a bacterial infection spread by vaginal, oral, or anal sex with someone who is infected. According to the CDC, chlamydia can cause substantial damage to a woman's reproductive system if left untreated, leading to infertility or fatal ectopic pregnancy.

According to the National Institutes of Health, many persons with chlamydia have no symptoms and can unknowingly transfer the disease to others. Abstaining from sex, using latex condoms, and being in a long-term mutually monogamous relationship with a partner who does not have chlamydia are all recommended by the CDC as the best strategies to prevent chlamydia.According to the National Institutes of Health, many persons with chlamydia have no symptoms and can unknowingly transfer the disease to others.

How to contract chlamydia

Chlamydia is spread through unprotected sexual contact with someone who is infected. According to the CDC, you can catch chlamydia even if your sexual partner is a man who is afflicted with the STD and does not ejaculate during sexual activity. If you are pregnant and have chlamydia, you can transmit it to your kid during childbirth, according to the CDC.

What is a chlamydia test?

A chlamydia test is a laboratory test that searches for the bacterium chlamydia in your body. This test can be done as a urine or swab test, according to the CDC.

Both men and women can take the urine test, whereas only women can take the swab test. The NIH reports that during a pelvic exam, an STD test provider takes a sample of cells with a small brush or cotton swab.

What is the treatment for chlamydia?

Antibiotics are a simple way to cure chlamydia. The CDC recommends a seven-day antibiotic course for chlamydia treatment. The CDC warns that while this will end the infection, it will not be able to heal any harm caused by the sickness. It also recommends that you refrain from sexual activity for at least seven days or for the duration of your chlamydia treatment.
