Chlamydia

Chlamydia is the most commonly diagnosed STI in England, affecting both men and women. You don’t need to have had lots of sexual partners to be at risk.

Most people who have chlamydia have no signs or symptoms, so you probably wont know if you or your partner(s) have it without having a test.

Any type of unprotected sex (without a condom) can increase your chances of catching chlamydia, this also includes close genital contact and oral sex. Untreated chlamydia can have serious long term health implications and may lead to infertility (being unable to have children). So if you are sexually active and under 25 years old, you should be tested for chlamydia annually or when you change your sexual partner.

Everyone can have a chlamydia test, just give us a call for more information or pop into one of our clinics for a test.

If you are under 25 years old you can get a free and confidential chlamydia test by post (order online here), by visiting one of our clinics, or at your GP,  local pharmacy and some youth clubs.

Chlamydia is easily tested and easy to treat – you don’t need to be examined.
