What is Chlamydia?

Chlamydia is sexually transmitted bacterial infection. It is one of the most common sexually transmitted disease and is most common in teenagers and young adults. It is easily transmitted through unprotected sexual intercourse. Around 75% of women and 50% of men who have chlamydia have no symptoms making it easy to catch unknowingly, however it can lead to serious complications if not treated. This can be particularly serious in women as it can lead to infertility if not treated.

Symptoms include fever, abnormal genital discharge which can be foul smelling, genital itching or burning sensations, pain when urinating, pain during sexual intercourse and genital swelling. Women may also experience bleeding between periods and painful periods. Chlamydia can also affect other parts of the body through unprotected intercourse such as the anus, throat or eyes.

If you are sexually active, it is recommended to take a Chlamydia test at least once a year or if you change a sexual partner.

Chlamydia Test and Treat Service (currently unavailable)

Chlamydia is caused by a bacterium called Chlamydia trichomatis. It is spread through the genital fluids of an infected person and spread through unprotected sexual intercourse. It can also be passed on from mothers to their child during pregnancy.
Chlamydia can be diagnosed and treated easily. Diagnosis usually involves a swab sample which is sent to a laboratory for analysis. It is treated with a short course of antibiotics.
