Chlamydia Screening

Chlamydia is the most common STI among under 25s and is caused by the bacteria Chlamydia Trachomatis. Chlamydia is easily passed from one person to another through sexual contact.

Chlamydia often has no symptoms, so you can only be sure you don’t have Chlamydia if you have a test.

Symptoms could include:

  • Unusual discharge from the vagina (or urethra), penis and/or anus
  • Pain when passing urine
  • Pain or bleeding during sex
  • Swelling/soreness around the genitals
  • Lower abdominal pain

If left untreated, Chlamydia can cause painful and serious health problems in men and women including infertility.

If you are aged between 15 and 25 then please feel free to ask at reception to obtain a testing kit or ask for an appointment with our Health Care Assistant to discuss further.
