Why get tested?

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 leading to serious health problems in later life, including chronic pain and infertility.
         

If you are under 25 and sexually active you should get tested for Chlamydia at least once per year.
 

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.

What if I don't live in Wolverhampton?

Every area in the country has its own Chlamydia screening programme.

Contact your local sexual health service to find about the service for your area.

Iā€™m not 15-24, what do I do?
