Diagnosis

The most reliable test in girls is a culture taken from the cervical cells. the best current test (90 percent accurate) can identify antibodies in 24 hours. For boys, doctors assume that any boy with the above symptoms who does not have gonorrhea has chlamydia. some doctors may try to identify white blood cells in the discharge. A boy should be treated for chlamydia if his sex partner has a positive chlamydia test, whether or not he has symptoms. Tests using urine samples have also recently been developed.
