Can A nurse tell you how long you've had chlamydia

Patient

Q: Can A nurse tell you how long you've had chlamydia for. Got told yesterday and am wondering

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
Chlamydia is an acute infection and if it is in the infective stage, with active discharge in most cases, it is around 7-8 days old infection. No one can predict the exact duration though.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards.
