The test for chlamydia is simple. Most people can have the test carried out on a urine sample. Some people have a swab test (a small cotton bud). The swab is used to gently wipe the area where you might have chlamydia, to collect some cells. The cells are then tested for infection. The doctor or nurse will explain which is the best test for you to have. You don't always have to be examined by the doctor or nurse – this will depend on your situation and where you go to get tested. People who have had anal or oral sex might have a swab taken from their rectum or throat. This isn't done on everyone. If you have symptoms in your eye, such as discharge or inflammation, a swab test might be taken to collect cells from your eyelid. Tests for women Chlamydia tests on women can be done with a urine sample or swab test. If a woman has a swab test, it can be taken from the cervix, or inside the lower vagina. Occasionally the doctor or nurse may advise you to have a swab test from the urethra (where urine comes out). Usually you can do a lower vaginal swab yourself, although sometimes a nurse or doctor may do it. If you have had anal or oral sex you might also be offered a swab test taken from the rectum or throat. This isn't done on everyone. Routine cervical screening tests (smear tests) do not detect chlamydia. You will need to tell the doctor or nurse if you would also like to be tested for chlamydia at the same time. Tests for men Men will usually have a chlamydia test on a urine sample. Occasionally, a swab test may be taken from the urethra (the tube where urine comes out) at the tip of the penis. If you have had anal or oral sex you might also be offered a swab test taken from the rectum or throat. This isn't done on everyone.
