Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection caused by bacteria called Chlamydia trachomatis. The bacteria are spread through anal, oral and vaginal sex, but can also be transmitted through the sharing of sex toys.
If left untreated, chlamydia can lead to several complications including infertility in both men and women.
Symptoms of Chlamydia can include:
In rare cases, the bacteria can infect the throat but present no symptoms.
Similarly to gonorrhoea, chlamydia can be asymptomatic, which means it may not cause any symptoms. Therefore, the only way of knowing whether you have chlamydia is to be tested.
It can take a number of weeks for the chlamydia infection to develop. If you test within the first 3 weeks after the suspected exposure to the infection, your test result may be a false positive. In order for your test to be most accurate, you should be tested at least 4 weeks after your suspected exposure to the infection.
If you are sexually active and not in a monogamous relationship, it is important to be regularly tested for STIs. Regardless of whether you have symptoms, a test can confirm if you have the infection.
There are a number of tests you can take to check your chlamydia status:
Our testing kits allow testing for a range of STIs from the privacy of your own home. As long as you collect the required sample correctly, by following the instructions, your results should be as accurate as if you went to a GUM or sexual health clinic.
The chlamydia test kit contains:
The best time to take the urine sample is first thing in the morning after waking up.
Once you've collected the sample required, following the instructions provided, you can post your sample to our partnered lab at your earliest convenience.
The turnaround time for your results is approximately 2 days upon receipt of your sample.
If your test comes back positive, you should inform your current or past partners, so they can be tested and treated for the infection if necessary. You should always use a condom with a new partner who has not yet been tested.
Your results will be made available through your online Prescription Doctor account. You will receive a notification via email and text message to inform you that your test results are ready to view.
Chlamydia is easily treated with a short course of antibiotics. The three most commonly used antibiotics used to treat chlamydia are:
When being treated for chlamydia, you should avoid sex for up to a week after treatment. This will mitigate the risk of passing the infection onto others. Even if you have received treatment for chlamydia, you can still pass on the infection to others. Treatment does not prevent a future infection of chlamydia or infections of other STIs such as gonorrhoea, syphilis or HIV.
You may need or want to make an appointment with your doctor to ensure the treatment worked and that the infection has cleared. This may require a second STI test to ensure you are clear.
In many cases, it is not necessary to revisit the clinic if you have taken your antibiotics correctly.
We understand your need for confidentiality when testing and sought treatment for sexually transmitted diseases.
All of our tests are delivered in discreet packaging and sealed with a security label to avert prying eyes.
