Hi doctor,

Thanks.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

It is almost always possible to have negative test results despite infection. This also varies from test to test and the laboratory technician who performed the particular examination. If you need to discuss more, you can contact me with test reports and reason for suspecting chlamydia infection.

I hope this information will help you.

Thanks.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
