If you have chlamydia is there a way of finding out how long you've had it?
Chlamydia has an incubation period (on average) between seven to 14 days in the human body. After the incubation period, symptoms would occur, but some people may have the disease and not know it because they didn't have any symptoms. In any case, the observed symptom would be an abnormal discharge from your penis and pain when you urinate; so, the first day you have these symptoms, you probably contracted Chlamydia one or two weeks prior. Again, the incubation period isn't always between seven to 14 days...it may be longer and not everyone will experience symptoms. However, I would suggest that you not concern yourself with 'when' you contracted it, but 'when' to get treated (which is now!). I hope you have a speedy recovery.
The virus can lay sleeping in your system for a very long time, so to determine the actual time you've had it is pretty difficult ... however, doctors can give you an estimate on how long it's been active by determining how much damage has been caused by it.
u would have to ask ur doc on that
