We have decided to do a ‘whistle-stop tour’ of Chlamydia symptoms and treatment.
Chlamydia is a bacteria that is sexually transmitted,is very common and can cause:
A change in vaginal discharge, pain during sex, pain passing urine, stomach pains and bleeding after sex or between periods in women.
In men, it can cause a discharge from the penis, testicular pain, pain or tingling when passing urine or no symptoms at all.
Anyone who notices these symptoms should have STI / STD tests, if they are concerned they may have an infection.
Most people infected with chlamydia have no symptoms.
The earlier a test detects chlamydia, the easier it is to treat. Our results return in 24 hours.
If the chlamydia infection is well established and has caused complications, it may be harder to treat with antibiotics.
We can provide antibiotics in clinic confidentially and at a reasonable cost.
It is essential that any sexual partner(s) are treated as well, before resuming sex. This will help avoid you becoming re-infected
