What is Chlamydia?

Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections in the UK.

It is an infection caused by Chlamydia trachomatis, which is usually spread through sexual contact. This is a bacterium which infects cells in the cervix, urethra, rectum and sometimes the eyes or throat.

As per the Advanced, Access report published 5 June 2018 Health Protection Report Volume 12 Number 20, Over 1.3 million chlamydia tests were carried out and over 126,000 chlamydia diagnoses were made among young people aged 15 to 24 years

Between 2016 and 2017 there was an 8% decline in the number of chlamydia tests, continuing the trend of the previous year; most of this decrease in testing took place in sexual and reproductive health (SRH) services, where chlamydia testing has fallen by 61% since 2015, likely reflecting a reduction in service provision

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.

If you simply want to exclude the possibility that you might have chlamydia then this is the right test for you. If you have any symptoms of a sexually transmitted infection, then we recommend our END THE WORRY screen in which we test for the most common 10 different infections, including Gardnerella, Chlamydia, Gonorrhoea, HIV, Hepatitis B & more, so we can correctly identify the root cause.

A discreet Test kit is dispatched simply at your given address. The sample is forwarded to the laboratory using our self-addressed envelope. Results are sent via a text message. Lab testing offers accurate results without the margin of errors as compared to the home self-testing kits.

What are the symptoms of chlamydia?

A large percentage of people with chlamydia will not encounter any obvious symptoms – 50% of men and 70-80% of women. However, many do experience some signs of chlamydia and could recognise one or more of the following symptoms.

Women:

  • an increase or change in vaginal discharge
  • pain passing urine
  • lower abdominal pain
  • pain during sex
  • bleeding in between periods

Men:

  • discharge from the end of the penis
  • pain, tingling or stinging when passing urine
  • The potential implications of chlamydia in men are often underestimated. If untreated it can cause damage to the DNA of sperm and scarring to the reproductive tract, which can lead to infertility.

What complications are associated with chlamydia?

If left untreated, in both those with and without symptoms, the results can be serious. This is especially for women who could develop:

  • pain in the lower abdomen due to PID (pelvic inflammatory disease)
  • infertility (difficulty becoming pregnant)
  • ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy in the fallopian tube)

 

How do I catch chlamydia?

Chlamydia trachomatis is usually passed from one person to another during unprotected sex. It is also possible to catch it from sex toys if not correctly washed, or covered in a new condom each time they are used.

How do I get tested for chlamydia?

We need a urine sample to carry out the test at our lab for male and female.

A yearly screening test is recommended for women younger than 25 years and for women 25 years and older with risk factors for chlamydia.

 

How is chlamydia treated?

Chlamydia is treated with antibiotic tablets. Anyone with whom you have had sexual contact in the past 60 days or your last sex partner also need to be tested and treated. Be sure to take all of your medicine as directed. Chlamydia can be passed to sex partners even during treatment. You should avoid sexual contact until treatment has been completed and your sex partners should as well. One needs to be tested for the chlamydia virus 3 months after the treatment.
