Chlamydia is the most commomly diagnosed sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the UK. It’s most common in men and women under 25. If chlamydia is not treated it can cause pain in the pelvis, infertility and ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy in the fallopian tube). If you are aged 16-25 and would like to be tested (all you need to do is give a urine sample) please make an appointment with the practice nurse. The service is completely confidential.
