    Chlamydia - Symptoms

    Most women and men with chlamydia do not have symptoms.

    The time between exposure to chlamydia and the start of symptoms-the incubation period-may range from days to months. If symptoms appear, it is usually 1 to 3 weeks after sexual contact with an infected person.
