Chlamydia Screening

What is chlamydia?

Chlamydia is the most common bacteria sexually transmitted infection in the UK. At least one in fourteen sexually active people under the age of 25 will have chlamydia - and you may not even know you have it because most people do not have any symptoms.

If left untreated, chlamydia can cause infertility (being unable to have children). The risk is increased if you get chlamydia again and again. If you do get symptoms these may show up one to three weeks after coming into contact with chlamydia, many months later or not until the infection spreads to other parts of your body.
