1 in 12 sexually active people under 25 years is likely to have Chlamydia and doesn’t know it.
So what is it?
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection which spreads about easily from partner to partner because you don’t know you have it.
Why is it important?
Untreated Chlamydia in women can cause pelvic inflammatory disease and is the biggest cause of preventable infertility (unable to get pregnant when you do want to). Chlamydia in males can lead to swollen and painful testicles. This is all so easily prevented with a quick test.
How do I do the test?
The test is dead simple. No embarrassing examinations. You can either get the test done at the surgery, or if you’d prefer, go to the "am I clear" website for more information or text 84010 (with your name, address, age & sex so they can send you the right kit) or ring 01473 275228.
