    Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the UK.

    It’s passed on from one person to another through unprotected sex.

    In 2012, 206,912 people tested positive for chlamydia in England. 64% of people diagnosed with chlamydia were under 25 years old.

    Chlamydia Symptoms

    Most people who have chlamydia don’t notice any symptoms, and so don’t know they have it. Research suggests that 50% of men and 70-80% of women don’t get symptoms at all with a chlamydia infection.

    Symptoms of chlamydia could be pain when you urinate, unusual discharge from the penis, vagina or rectum or, in women , bleeding between periods or after sex.

    Treating Chlamydia

    Chlamydia is easily treated with antibiotics. You may be given a single dose, or a longer course of antibiotics to take for a week.

    If chlamydia isn’t treated, the infection can sometimes spread to other parts of your body and lead to serious long-term health problems such as pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility.
