How To Prepare
A chlamydia test is done on either a urine sample or fluid
(direct sample) collected from the area of the body that is most likely to be
infected. If your chlamydia test is being done on
- Urine sample: Do not urinate for 2 hours
before a urine sample is collected.
- Direct sample (usually from the cervix): A
woman should not douche or use vaginal creams or medicines for 24 hours before
having a chlamydia test.
