If your symptoms clear up after treatment then it’s likely that the antibiotics have worked. However, you will need to be re-tested if: 

  • You still have the symptoms of chlamydia 
  • You didn’t finish taking the course of antibiotics 
  • You had sex before you and your partner finished treatment 
  • You’re pregnant 

If you tested positive for chlamydia and you are under 25, then you are at higher risk of catching chlamydia again and should be re-tested after three to six months.
