Ok. Well the chlamydia infection can elevate the PSA because it can get into the prostate. You need to see a urologist for a prostate exam to determine if you need a long course of antibiotics to treat prostatitis related to chlamydia. The PSA should not be repeated for at least 4 weeks after the infection is treated completely. Hope this helps.
