How is the infection diagnosed?

The provider may suspect a chlamydia infection after taking a medical history and performing an examination. The provider may take a sample of material from the infected area to be checked in the laboratory for the organisms that cause the infection. For a cervical infection, this would involve a pelvic examination and a culture of material from the surface of the cervix. A throat culture may be ordered if a chlamydia infection of the throat is suspected.
