1. Urinating will be painful when you have chlamydia.
By it being painful to urinate, you may not want to urinate as often. Even if you need to urinate, the pain will keep you from urinating. It is best to seek medical treatment, so the doctor can give you a urine test. The urine test is needed to find out why you are experiencing pain.
A blood test needs to be given as well because the doctor may mistake painful urination with it being a UTI. The medicine given for a UTI won’t clear up chlamydia. The person will need to go back to the doctor for further tests. That’s why it’s important to have blood and urine tests done at the same time.
Blood tests will more than likely show that the person has chlamydia. Antibiotics will be prescribed to get rid of the bacteria, which is what chlamydia is.
