Chlamydia is an infection which can be passed on during sex, including oral sex.
It’s the most common bacterial sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the UK, and can affect both men and women. It often shows no symptoms, so many people have Chlamydia without actually knowing.
Without taking a test you will not know whether you have it! If left undetected, Chlamydia can cause serious health problems in the future, including long term complications such as infertility – in men and women.
The only way to be sure that you don’t have Chlamydia is to get tested, because most men and women show no symptoms.
Screening is easy and free and confidential. All we need is a urine/pee sample and if you are female you can take your own swab, it’s easier than inserting a tampon.
