Why is it important to get tested?
It's important to get tested for chlamydia because:
What does the test involve?
The test is free, simple, painless and confidential. You can do the test yourself and you don't need to be examined.
How long does it take before I get the results?
After a swab or urine test is taken, it's sent away for analysis. It can take seven to 10 days for the results to come through.
Are the tests accurate?
Yes. It's very rare for the chlamydia test to be wrong. If you're concerned, discuss this with the staff when you get your results.
How is chlamydia treated?
The most common treatment for chlamydia is a course of antibiotics.
How quickly will treatment work?
You should notice improvements quickly if you had any signs or symptoms. If the symptoms don't improve, seek advice from your GP, a sexual health clinic or pharmacy. You may have a different STI, and require further tests and different antibiotics.
