Following diagnosis, with the right treatment, you can expect chlamydia to last for 1 to 2 weeks. If your symptoms do not clear within 14 days of treatment should contact your doctor or a sexual health clinic.  

It is possible to have chlamydia without knowing; it can remain in your system for weeks or even months before you notice any symptoms or until it shows up on a test.
