Question: chlamydia detected now but not before with same partner?

 loulou - Thu Sep 29, 2005 11:25 pm

I am pregant with second child and routine blood tests detected chlamydia. This was not detected two years ago with first pregnancy. I am in a trusted monogomous married relationship. How could the results be so defferent years apart with same partner?

User avatar Possibly they didn't test for it the first time, or mabye the results were wrong, mistakes happen.
Unfortunatly, the other possibility is that your parter gave it to you sometime the past 2 years.
Either way, if you tested positive, your parter needs to be tested and treated.
