What about sexual partners?

What about sexual partners?

What should you tell sexual partners if you find out you have chlamydia?

  • It is really important that partners get treated too!

  • Chlamydia can be easily passed on, so it is likely that anyone you've had sex with recently may also have the infection.

  • If your current sexual partner isn't treated at the same time as you, you may get the infection back again.

How do partners get treated?

  • It's not always easy to tell your partner or ex-partner that you have had a positive test.

  • Your nurse can talk with you about how best to inform partners.

  • You may wish to bring your partner with you when you attend for treatment - you may be seen together or separately.

  • If you don't want to tell someone yourself, the nurse can contact him or her to offer treatment, without giving any information about you.

What if you find out that someone you've had sex with has got chlamydia?

  • Treatment is recommended for anyone who knows that they have had sex (even with a condom) with another person who has been diagnosed with chlamydia.

  • It's generally safer to have treatment rather than wait for your own test result, just in case an infection gets missed.
