Q.

Can a yeast infection cause a false positive chlamydia test?

I was recently tested for STD's and while they were waiting for the results to come back I was diagnosed with a yeast infection. The next day I was then called and told the test had come back positive for Chlamydia. Is there any chance that this positive Chlamydia test could be the result of the yeast infection?

No. The chlamydia test is a DNA test and very accurate.
