Brief Answer:
Unless IgM is positive, you do not have Chlamydia

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.

I have gone carefully through your query and understand your concerns. Whether you have Chlamydia would be determined by the Chlamydia IgM. If it is negative, you do not have Chlamydia. The IgG positivity indicates that one had Chlamydia ever in life. A borderline report as in this case is insignificant in any case. You do not need to worry.

Let me know if I could help further.

I tested for pcr DNA test 6 days after exp and it came out negative. It was a urine test. Was it conclusive?

And should I go for Igm test?

3 months have passed after potential exposure and I never had real symptoms like discharge etc. though I did have sore penis after two days from exposure.

Brief Answer:
Test conclusive. No need to worry.

Detailed Answer:
The DNA PCR is conclusive. You can rely on it. You do not need an IgM to be done. You need not worry about the exposure.

The soreness of your penis is possibly unrelated.
