Why is Chlamydia Often Described as the Silent Disease?

chlamydia test online

People infected with Chlamydia quite often display absolutely no symptoms. Around 70% of women and 50% of men infected with Chlamydia have no obvious symptoms. That is why Chlamydia is often described as the “silent disease”.

If left untreated, Chlamydia infections can develop into serious reproductive and general health problems. Like the disease itself, the damage that Chlamydia causes is often “silent.”

If you just want to make sure that you don’t have Chlamydia, then a postal / Lab chlamydia test would be appropriate for you. Chlamydia can be easily tested by taking a swab or by using a urine test.

If you are confused about your symptoms and not sure which test to go for then our END THE WORRY screen is a better choice, in which we test for the most common 10 different infections, including Chlamydia, GonorrheaHIVHepatitis B & more, so we can correctly identify the root cause.

It is impossible to know the underlying cause of your symptoms without being tested. Do not attempt to guess which bacteria is present as many produce similar symptoms.
