How is chlamydia diagnosed?

To diagnose chlamydia, a doctor will collect a sample of urine or take a swab from areas most likely to be affected by the infection. This may include the vagina, cervix, penis or anus. The samples are sent off to a laboratory and tested to see if the bacteria that cause chlamydia are present.
