What is the Chlamydia Trachomatis Antibody IgM test?
The Chlamydia Trachomatis IgG Antibody testing (CAT) has been used as a screening test for tubal factor infertility (TFI), but the CAT is only a marker of past exposure to Chlamydia. The trachomatis does not have late sequelae, and the positive predictive value (PPV) of the test is low. The IgG antibody detection is a marker for a Chlamydia-positive immune response, either for current, chronic, or past infections.
When is the Chlamydia Trachomatis Antibody IgM test recommended?
It is recommended when:
In women, the common symptoms are abdominal pain, pain while urinating, frequent urination, painful intercourse, bleeding between menstrual periods, bleeding after intercourse, vaginal discharge, etc.
In men, the symptoms are frequent urination, pain while urinating, pain in the testicles, tenderness or swelling of the testicles, milky discharge, or pus from the testicles.
The most common symptoms in both men and women are pain, discharge, inflammation, itching, and bleeding from the rectal region. If these symptoms have been experienced, this test is recommended.
What does it measure?
The Chlamydia Trachomatis Antibody IgM test:
Analyzes and measures the levels of anti-chlamydia antibodies (IgM) in the blood.
This test helps in identifying a chlamydia infection caused by Chlamydia trachomatis.
This infection is associated with the mucous membrane of the urogenital system, eye, and upper respiratory tract. This test is very useful in identifying the site of infection, previous exposure to these antigens, and the duration of the disease. Most of the time, this infection is seen in sexually active individuals and can be transmitted sexually. If the individuals are reinfected with chlamydia infection, IgM antibodies may not appear.
