Can chlamydial infection be without symptoms for over a year ?

I m a 23yo healthy female with no history of any std. I m 5 7 & about 140lbs. My boyfriend recently got tested for chlamydia . It came back non-conclusive, but he does have a NGU. Over a year ago he cheated on me. Is it possible that this std can be in the body for over a year with no symptoms? I had no symptoms and had a pap smear about 6 months ago & it was clean. After he informed me I began to feel itchy & a slight abdominal pain with a discharge. Do u think I m making the symptoms?

Hi, I have recently just been released from jail and I ve noticed that it has been hard for me to pee ever since I ve got back. It has only gotten worse, so I went to my doctor and he thinks I have chlamydia. But that is impossible because I have only been dating one girl for over a year and I know she has been faithful. But now tonight both my testicles are kind of hurting and I don t know why

Three years ago, before i met my husband, I was diagnosed with Chlamydia. I have been treated and it is gone. I am now pregnant, had my first OB appt. they did the DNA probe for Chlamydia and Gonorrhea, and a lot of blood work. Will these tests show I have had it in the past, even if I don t have it anymore? NO ONE knows I have had it once. Not my OB, not my husband.

For the past two years, I ve been getting what I thought were urinary tract infections. While being treated for that, my symptoms would be better, but not gone all the way. The symptoms I m referring to is the following: When I have to urinate, my left side hurts by the top half of my ribs. The pain goes into my chest. When my side hurts, that s how I know I have to urinate. Sometime the urination has a bad smell. I don t feel the tinkling in my stomach anymore when I need to urinate, only an uncomfortable feeling in my side, and chest. My doctor passed away in August, and I now have no insurance. Please help!
