Chlamydia

Chlamydia is the most common bacterial sexually transmitted infection. Below are some key facts:

  • It affects both men and women.
  • About 1 in 10 sexually active young people who are tested have Chlamydia.
  • You can get Chlamydia by having sex (vaginal, anal, and oral, or by sharing sex toys)
  • with someone who has the infection.
  • An infection can be recent or you could have had it for many months, even years
  • without knowing, as 70% of people with Chlamydia do not know they are infected
  • meaning they have no symptoms
  • Chlamydia can also be passed to the eyes if infected genital body fluid (vaginal discharge or semen) gets into them.

Do you have Symptoms?

If you have symptoms you should get yourself tested to avoid infection developing and from transferring it to someone else.
