Chlamydia

The Suffolk Chlamydia Screening Programme is part of the National Screening Programme and is a community based service which is offering screening for one of the most common sexually transmitted infections to young people under the age of 25.

  • It is estimated that 1:10 young people, both men and women, under the age of 25 may have Chlamydia
  • Many people who have Chlamydia may not be aware as they may have no symptoms
  • Screening is now available by doing a simple urine test and a self taken low vaginal swab
  • Chlamydia can be treated with antibiotics
  • Left untreated Chlamydia can cause serious long term health consequences such as infertility
  • Sexual partners also need to be seen

The aim of the screening programme is to offer opportunistic screening to asymptomatic young people in a variety of settings. All results, follow up for positive patients and partner notification is co-ordinated by the Chlamydia Screening Office.
 

How can I find out about screening?
If you are aged between 15 and 25 years old, ask a Doctor or Nurse for a screening pack.
