What is chlamydia?
Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the UK. Untreated chlamydia can cause serious long-term complications such as infertility
Most people don't have obvious symptoms, so might not know there's even a problem, meaning it's even more important to make sure you're clear - request a test kit here.
Sometimes, people with chlamydia might notice the following:
A vaginal discharge that's different than usual
The need to pee more often or pain on peeing
Pain during sex
Pain in the lower abdomen
Irregular bleeding between periods or after sex
A discharge from the tip of the penis
Pain and/or burning when peeing
Irritation at the tip of the penis
Painful swelling of the balls (testicles)
We recommend that you have a check up at your local sexual health/GUM clinic if you notice any unusual signs or symptoms.
