Testing for Chlamydia

At our sexual health clinics, we will ask you to provide a urine sample and staff may ask you if they can use a swab to collect cell samples. This only takes a few seconds and isn't not generally painful - it may be a bit uncomfortable for a very short while.

Treatment for Chlamydia

Chlamydia can be treated with a course of antibiotics but it is important you complete the full course. Clinical staff will explain the treatment to you, and how to avoid further infections in the future. Do advise a member of staff if you think you are pregnant as this may affect the type of antibiotic you're given. Remember, using condoms every time you have any kind of sex (vaginal, anal or oral) will significantly reduce the likelihood of you contracting Chlamydia. Condoms can be used for all different types of sex.

Do you have Symptoms?

If you have symptoms you should get yourself tested to avoid infection developing and from transferring it to someone else.
