She or he may perhaps take a specimen from the urethra in males or the cervix  of the uterus of the suspected female using a swab for onward lab analysis.  In order to check the existence of  bacterial infection, the doctor may take a specimen of urine.

How to treat Chlamydia?

In case of your having diagnosed with chlamydia, your doctor may prescribe antibiotics, generally doxycycline or zithromax (azithromycin) to be taken orally. Your doctor may also suggest your partner’s to be treated for preventing re-infection and promotion of multiplying the ailment to others.
