Chlamydia is a bacterial infection caused by the bacteria chlamydia trachomatis.
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection (STI). It can be transmitted through oral, vaginal or anal sex, and can also be passed from a mother to her baby during childbirth.
Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the UK. Chlamydia can often be completely symptomless, meaning it's more likely to be spread without people knowing that they're infected. For this reason, it is important to have regular sexual health checkups, when you have a new sexual partner. If symptoms of chlamydia do develop, they can include:
If you are sexually active and under the age of 25, it is recommended that you get tested for chlamydia at least once a year. You should also get tested whenever you change sexual partner.
This kit tests for chlamydia. In men, this test uses a urine sample, but for women, a vaginal swab is used.
Chlamydia test kits are different for men and women. The women’s test requires a swab from the inside of the vagina, while the men’s test requires a urine sample. Swabs and samples are sent to a laboratory where they are tested for the presence of chlamydia. A different test is required to check for oral or anal chlamydia.
Before taking a test, you should wash your hands thoroughly.
Women should carefully remove the swab from the packet and insert it gently into the vagina. Aim to insert the swab around 5 cm into the vagina, which should not hurt. Rotate the stick carefully around the vagina, ensuring that it touches the walls, and remove it after 10 to 30 seconds. Place the swab head-down into the liquid-filled tube and snap the stick along the indented line. Seal the tube and place it inside the return packaging.
Men will need to provide a urine sample. Unscrew the cap of the container and hold it under the stream of urine once you start urinating, collecting your sample mid-stream. When the container is full and you have finished urinating, screw the lid on tightly and place it in the return packaging.
You will receive your results by email or text message if you have provided a UK mobile number for us to contact you on.
The test is highly accurate. Follow the instructions carefully and examine your test kit for any signs of damage before use. If it becomes compromised in any way then do not use it. Instead, let us know so that we can send you a new one.
If you test positive for chlamydia then we will prescribe you with treatment to clear the infection. This comes in the form of an antibiotic and it’s usually taken as one dose. You will need to tell your current or most recent partner to let them know that they should also get tested and treated for chlamydia. If you haven’t already, then it’s advisable to get tested for other STIs too.
Using condoms is the best way to avoid chlamydia. Many people do not know they have it as it’s often symptomless. You should always use condoms with new or casual partners.
