Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted infection in people under 25.
Most people don’t know they are infected as there are no symptoms in the majority of cases.
Untreated Chlamydia can cause permanent damage to the reproductive system and lead to health problems in later life, including chronic pain and infertility.
What does the test involve?
- The test is a self-taken sample. This is a urine sample for men and a self-taken vaginal swab for women.
- All results are handled by our Health Advisors team who inform each person individually of their results.
- All tests and results are strictly confidential and no other person is informed without your permission.
- If your result is positive, treatment is simple and effective – usually just a single dose of antibiotics, available free through the programme.
