Chlamydia Test Kit
Chlamydia is the most common bacterial sexually transmitted infection in the UK. Chlamydia is often called the 'silent epidemic' - as most people don't know they have it because typically there are no symptoms. It can stay undetected for months or years, and left untreated the infection can spread and cause serious long term problems that can affect fertility and sexual health in both men and women.
Chlamydia is an extremely common sexually transmitted infection caused by bacteria called Chlamydia trachomatis. Left untreated the infection can spread and cause serious long term problems that can affect fertility and sexual health in both men and women.
These bacteria are spread by sex. Once infected, the bacteria live in the semen and vaginal fluids of men and women and are passed on through sexual contact. Chlamydia infects the cervix (neck of womb), the urethra (tube that drains urine from the bladder) and the rectum (back passage).
Men and women, particularly those aged 25-40, who are considering starting a family and are concerned about infections that could affect their fertility, should get advice from the pharmacist.
When should I get tested?
You should get tested, whatever your age or sex, in particular if:
You are considering starting a family and want to check you have no chlamydial infection that could affect your fertility
You've had unprotected sex and are worried you may have chlamydia
You've changed sexual partner
Where do I get tested?
You can buy the Clamelle Chlamydia Test Kit. Each test kit contains:- instruction leaflet, test request form, urine sample bottle, transport container, pre paid padded envelope. Post the urine sample off directly to the designated laboratory. Your result will be available within seven days. You can choose to either receive your result in the post or by returning to a pharmacy participating in the Clamelle chlamydia service.
Is it confidential?
Yes, the results of the Clamelle Chlamydia Test are completely confidential and will not be passed onto your GP unless you request them to do so. You are given a Unique Reference Number (URN) to maintain this confidentiality.
What if my results are positive?
If you have bought a test and the result is positive, don't worry. You can be treated quickly with antibiotics. Just go to any participating pharmacy offering the Clamelle chlamydia service. The pharmacist will provide you with appropriate sexual health advice and following consultation you can purchase Clamelle Azithromycin 500mg Tablets if the pharmacist confirms the treatment is suitable for you.
