Cause of Chlamydia

Chlamydia is a bacterial infection that is most commonly transmitted though having unprotected sex with someone who is infected, or contact with infected genitals.

You can catch chlamydia from:

  • Having unprotected sex (vaginal, anal or oral)
  • Infected semen or vaginal discharge getting into your eyes
  • Your genitals coming into contact with your partner's genitals
  • Sexual partners sharing sex toys that have not been washed or covered with a new condom each time they are used

Pregnant women can also pass chlamydia to their unborn baby.

You cannot pass chlamydia on through casual contact, such as kissing, shaking hands, sharing towels, toilet seats, cutlery or hugging.

How common is chlamydia?

Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the UK. It is particularly common in young people; it is estimated that 1 in 20 sexually active young women between 14 and 24 years old has chlamydia.

Chlamydia Diagnosis

Chlamydia can be diagnosed by having either a urine or swab test.

You do not always require a physical examination by your doctor, although you are advised to get tested every time you have a new sexual partner.

A chlamydia test is available free of charge from a sexual health clinic, a genitourinary medicine (GUM) clinic, or from your local GP.

If you are under 25, you are also able to be tested by the National Chlamydia Screening Programme (NCSP), which is often in a local pharmacy, college or contraception clinic.

You can also buy chlamydia test kits to use at home.

Getting a Chlamydia Test

Not everyone who has chlamydia experiences symptoms, making the spread of the disease easy between partners. If you think you could have chlamydia, or any other STI/STD, seek medical advice as soon as you can. It is also important for anyone who is sexually active to get tested regularly as a precaution.

Self-testing kits are readily available online or obtained from sexual health clinics. Some STI kits will test for chlamydia alone, and others can test for chlamydia, gonorrhoea, HIV, and syphilis together.

Chlamydia Treatments

Is chlamydia curable?

Antibiotics are the most common treatment for chlamydia. They can clear the infection within a week when used properly.

Sometimes, a pharmacy may give you tablets for chlamydia that you should take all in one day. In other instances, you may be put on a longer course of capsules for 7 days.
