About

What is chlamydia?

Chlamydia is a common bacterial infection which is passed on through sexual contact with an infected partner. It can produce symptoms but it will often go undetected for a long time. 

How do you catch chlamydia?

Chlamydia is passed on through genital fluids. You can catch it through having vaginal, oral and anal sex without a condom with a partner who is infected. 

Can you contract chlamydia by any other means that sex?

Chlamydia is passed on through sexual intercourse but it can also be contracted by performing oral sex on an infected partner. It cannot be transmitted via kissing or touching.

Who should get tested for chlamydia?

Anyone who has had unprotected sex, including oral or anal, should get tested for chlamydia. 70% of women and 50% of men with chlamydia won't show any symptoms so you may not know you have it until you get tested. It's recommended to get tested for chlamydia, and other STIs, every time you change partners.

How is chlamydia treated?

Chlamydia is easily treated with antibiotics. The most common treatment is four tablets of Azithromycin which is taken all at once. If this antibiotic is unsuitable for you, you may be prescribed with Doxycycline which is taken twice a day for 7 days. You should avoid having sex while you are being treated.

Is chlamydia curable?

Chlamydia is easy to treat and cure with a single dose of antibiotics. In 95% of cases, the infection will disappear with the first course of treatment. 

Will chlamydia go away on its own?

Chlamydia won't go away on its own without treatment. It can feel distressing or embarrassing to test positive for a sexually transmitted infection but chlamydia is very common and nothing to be ashamed about. In the short term, chlamydia is unharmful but if left untreated it can cause fertility problems and pelvic infections. Treatment for chlamydia is easily accessible and usually administered as one dose of antibiotics. 

What are the long term effects of chlamydia?

Chlamydia can cause complications if it is left untreated. In men, the infection can spread to the testicles leading to epididymitis, which is where they become painful and swollen. Chlamydia can also lead to pelvic inflammatory disease in women. This can cause pelvic discomfort and pain, fertility problems and an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy. 

What are the risks if chlamydia is left undiagnosed and untreated?

Chlamydia can go undetected for a long time and it's often not diagnosed until either you or your partner gets tested. Eventually it can spread to the womb or testicles causing pelvic inflammatory disease, fertility problems, a risk of ectopic pregnancy and pain in the testicles. 

Symptoms

What are the symptoms of chlamydia?

Chlamydia is frequently symptomless, particularly in women. When symptoms do occur they include: 

  • Unusual discharge from the vagina 
  • Pain during sex
  • Bleeding after sex
  • Bleeding between periods 
  • Lower abdominal pain
  • Pain during urination 

Men may experience: 

  • Discharge from the penis
  • Pain during urination 
  • Burning or itching of the urethra 
  • Testicular pain

How is chlamydia diagnosed?

Chlamydia is diagnosed by taking a chlamydia test. Women are given a swab test which is inserted into the entrance of the vagina and men are given a urine test. The samples are screened for the presence of the bacteria and then you will be contacted to let you know whether your test is positive or negative. 

Q&A

Who is most at risk of chlamydia?

While anyone who has had unprotected sex with a new partner is at risk of chlamydia, people who change partners frequently or have multiple partners are more at risk. The infection is more common in men under the age of 25 and women aged 15-19. 

Can I test for chlamydia at home?

Dr Felix offers an at home chlamydia test for both men and women. This allows you to get tested in the comfort of your own home with added discretion. Test kits for oral and anal use are also available.

Can you get chlamydia from kissing?

You cannot get chlamydia from kissing. 

Can you get chlamydia from urine?

Chlamydia cannot be transmitted through urine. In men, chlamydia is detected through a urine test but it cannot be passed on in this way.

When is the best time to get tested?

The best time to get tested for chlamydia is 2 weeks after having unprotected sex. This is because the infection may not be detected in the first couple of weeks. You should get tested as soon as possible after this time period.

I moved 150 miles from my GP (to uni) and was unable to go home or visit a walk in for another 2 days due to being at work (12.5 hour shifts). I filled out a quick form - and 1.5 days later I had my antibiotics delivered to my door and I am on the mend. 10/10.
