In Bristol, 1 in 14 people under 25 that test have Chlamydia.
Chlamydia is the most commonly diagnosed STI in the UK affecting both men and women.
Most people with Chlamydia have no symptoms, but it could have long-term consequences for your health. To keep yourself safe you should do a test everytime you have a new sexual partner.
How does the test work?
The test is easy to use and you can do it yourself at home. Just pee into a pot if you are male or take a vaginal swab if you are female. Then either pop it in the post, using the pre-paid envelope, or, hand it back to the testing venue. The sample will be processed and you will receive your results in ten working days.
What if it comes back positive?
You will be called by a nurse who will arrange for you to get treatment. Treatment is a one-off dose of antibiotics and is normally free.
