What is it? 

Chlamydia can affect both men and women.

Once transmitted to women though, Chlamydia may cause Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), which could mean they can’t have children.

How is it spread?

It is spread by having unprotected sex with someone who has the infection. It may not be obvious that they have it as 70 - 80%people don’t have symptoms


What are the symptoms?

· The need to frequently pass water and, when you do, you feel a burning sensation or discomfort

· For men, a slight, cloudy fluid, which oozes from the tip of the penis, mainly when waking up in the morning (this is a different fluid to semen). Or, painful, swollen testicles.

· Abnormal discharge from the vagina, urethra or anus

. Many people never experience any symptoms but may still be infected

. For women, bleeding between periods or during or after sex or lower abdominal pain


How can I get rid of it?

A treatment of antibiotics - which can be prescribed at sexual health clinics or GP surgeries


To help avoid getting one at all – use a condom!
