The Lab Collection for the Chlamydia Test is by urine and doesn't require a swab which in males can be very painful.

first-void urine (please do not urinate for one hour before specimen collection)
2 mL of a 20 mL to 30 mL urine collection, or entire liquid cytology vial
2 mL of a 15 mL urine collection, or entire liquid cytology vial

Urine Specimen: The patient should not have urinated for at least one hour prior to specimen collection. Direct patient to provide a first-catch urine (approximately 20 to 30 mL of the initial urine stream) into a urine collection cup without any preservatives. Collection of larger volumes of urine may result in specimen dilution that may reduce test sensitivity; lesser volumes may not adequately rinse organisms into the specimen. Female patients should not cleanse the labial area prior to providing the specimen. Add urine to the APTIMA® Combo 2 urine collection device. The final volume must be between the two black lines on the device (about 2 mL).
Maintain specimen at room temperature or refrigerate (2°C to 30°C).
