Welcome to Healthcare Magic
Incubation period is the time from the exposure to the development of symptoms of the disease. In Chlamydia infection it is around 1-3 weeks. There are certain tests which can detect Chlamydia and it would be best to receive prophylactic treatment especially if your sexual partner already has Chlamydiasis. Kindly consult your Doctor, get examined and required tests and proper treatment before you suffer from complications of the disease. Please use a condom which prevents STDs.
