Hi everyone. I found out yesterday that I had chlamydia. My (now) husband, who is in the USMC, and I started dating in December 2005. Prior to this, I had been with 2 men, and used a condom every time (I know that condoms aren't 100%).
My husband has not been tested yet, but claims that he was automatically tested before deployment (March 2005) and after deployment (March 2006).
I thought I had been tested every year, because I have had an annual pap for the last 7 years, but to my dismay, I was informed that you had to specifically ask for the test. I was last tested and found negative in November 2003.
I'm sure it is possible that I contracted it between November 2003 and December 2005, but I can't discount the fact that my husband isn't 100% sure that he had been tested.
I have been faithful to him, and know that he has been faithful to me as well (without a doubt).
So, my question is: Will the USMC automatically test for chlamydia, or do you have to request it (like in my case)? I did look through his medical records, and saw that he had been tested for HIV in December 2004 (a year before we met) and was negative.
I appreciate any response! Thank you!
