Chlamydia does not lie dormant, although 80-90% of women and half of men with chlamydia have no symptoms. A chlamydia test would come out positive if you have chlamydia, even if you don't have symptoms. It's possible you may not have chlamydia but another STD. Go to your local family planning center, STD clinic or GUM clinic to get tested if you're having symptoms.
