How is Chlamydia diagnosed?

In 2014, chlamydia is most often diagnosed via urine testing in males, and with urine testing, cervical swab, or self-administered vaginal swab in females. For rectal or pharyngeal testing, a swab is used. Laboratory testing may involve growing chlamydia from the swab (rarely used in 2014), or looking for chlamydial DNA.
You get tested by the doctor.
