Chlamydia is a bacterial Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) that lives inside human cells. Approximately 75% of women and 50% of men show no symptoms of the disease after infection.
If left untreated, chlamydia can damage the sexual organs. This can cause infertility in women and men. It is imperative that Chlamydia is diagnosed and treated as soon as possible.
You will need a consultation with our Sexual Health Consultant which costs £85 or one of our Private GPs which costs £100.
Sometimes we test urine, sometimes we test using swab.
We offer consultation and testing for chlamydia 6 days per week for males and females
Chlamydia is also included in our combined STI multiple tests.
Chlamydia can cause an infection in a woman’s cervix and bladder. It is known to cause pelvic inflammatory disease. Scar tissue can develop within the tubes and affect the eggs passing for a successful pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancy risk is greater when chlamydia is present or left untreated.
If chlamydia is present when a woman is pregnant it can lead to miscarriage, and cause infections and pneumonia to the baby.
Men have reduced fertility when chlamydia is present, and it can affect the bladder and testes.
Other signs of Chlamydia infection in men can be a swollen scrotum as well as painful testicles and pain experienced when urinating.
Chlamydia is passed on by sexual contact including oral, vaginal and sex.
Although many people do not have symptoms, symptoms can include:
The incubation is 14 days.
Results from all samples take two working days from when the sample is received in the laboratory.
Regular retesting is advised if you continue to be at risk. A repeat test is recommended with every partner change.
Chlamydia is curable and can be treated with a course of antibiotics. You should not have sex until the treatment has finished, and the symptoms have gone away.
Chlamydia can be tested by urine test or swab.
