Chlamydia is a bacterial infection and the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the UK. It is particularly prevalent among young people, but a growing number of people over the age of forty are testing positive. The infection rarely carries symptoms, but can be transmitted nonetheless. Due to its frequently asymptomatic nature, it is important to test for chlamydia, in order to avoid passing it on to a partner and to avoid developing complications. If left untreated, chlamydia can cause more serious conditions such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), epididymo-orchitis (inflammation of the testicles), and infertility.

When should I get tested?

Specifically, in terms of chlamydia, you should get tested if you notice symptoms of abnormal discharge, and pain during intercourse or urination. Given that the condition is often asymptomatic, however, it is always advised that you get tested after having unprotected sex with a new partner.

What does the test include?

The test for chlamydia is a simple urine test. The healthcare professional will send your sample to the laboratory for testing.

What to Expect

Step 1

Preparing for test

To get the most accurate result, we recommend that you avoid urinating for two hours prior to your appointment.
 
Step 2

During the test

Your test includes a consultation with an experienced sexual health professional, who will ask you about your medical and sexual history, typical contraceptive methods, and other questions about your sex life, sexual practices, and sexual partners. All of your information will be treated with the utmost confidentiality. You will take your own urine sample, which will be sent to a laboratory for testing.
