How long can chlamydia be detected in the body after infection?
My doctor said the test for chlamydia shows if there is DNA of the bacteria present, and that the bacteria may or may not be alive. Does this mean the chlamydia infection could be finished but still detectable. If so how long does it remain detectable? Is there any time scale at all that could possibly give an indication on how long I had it? Note: I do not need an explanation of what chlamydia is. Thanks
