Can You Be A Carrier Of Chlamydia & Test Negative?

Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the UK and is quickly passed from one person to another during sex or sexual contact. It’s one of the most common symptomless STDs, so many people will be unaware that they are infectious. Some people will even test negative while being infected.

Our experts at Your Sexual Health have curated this article to explain when to test for chlamydia and how to know if you are infected. But first things first, can you be a carrier of chlamydia and test negative? 

Yes, you can be a carrier of chlamydia, but test negative. This is commonly known as a false negative test and can happen if you test before the incubation period, take the wrong test or have sex whilst you are on medication. It’s essential to regularly test for STDs if you are sexually active or having sex with a new partner to reduce the complications that a prolonged infection can cause.
