Buy Chlamydia Treatment
Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the UK. It's a bacterial infection, which is found in semen and vaginal fluids. Chlamydia is usually passed from one person to another during vaginal, oral or anal sex, or by sharing sex toys.
Chlamydia symptoms and complications
Half of men and the majority of women do not notice any symptoms. However, symptoms and complications may develop if it is left untreated. Usually symptoms appear between one and three weeks after having unprotected sex with an infected person. In some cases, the symptoms occur many months later, or not until the infection has spread. In women, Chlamydial infection usually affects the cervix and uterus (the womb). In men, it usually affects the urethra in the penis. Chlamydia sometimes causes infection of the eye, throat, and lungs. If not treated, Chlamydia can cause pelvic pain, infertility and blocked fallopian tubes in females. In males, testicular problems and reduced fertility can occur.
Chlamydia symptoms in women
Around 70-80% of women with Chlamydia don't notice any symptoms. If women do get symptoms, the most common include:
- Pain (and/or bleeding) during sex or when passing urine
- Bleeding between periods or during or after sex
- Lower abdominal (pelvic) pain
- Heavier periods than usual
If Chlamydia is left untreated in women, it can spread to the womb and cause pelvic inflammatory disease which is a major cause of infertility, miscarriage and ectopic pregnancy.
Chlamydia symptoms in men
Men may notice the following symptoms:
- A white/cloudy or watery discharge from the penis
- Pain when passing urine or painful testicles
- Burning and itching in the genital area
Some men have mild symptoms that disappear after two or three days. Even if the symptoms disappear you will still have the infection and be able to pass it on. If Chlamydia is left untreated in men they are at risk of complications such as orchitis (swollen testicles), reactive arthritis (inflammation of the joints) and infertility.
Chlamydia symptoms in both men and women
If the infection is in the rectum, there are rarely any symptoms although there can sometimes be discomfort and discharges. Infection in the eyes can cause pain swelling, irritation and discharge. Chlamydia in the throat is uncommon and usually has no symptoms.
Chlamydia does not usually produce open sores or blisters. If these are present a GP should be consulted.
Chlamydia self testing
Sexually active people should test every year and when they have a new partner. If you think you might have Chlamydia, it's important to get tested quickly. You can get tested whether or not you have symptoms. The Chlamydia Test Kit is everything you need for a confidential test at home.

The UK has the highest rate of sexually transmitted infections in Europe, and the number of Chlamydia cases has increased by 300% in the last 12 years. More than 95% people with Chlamydia will be cured if they take antibiotics correctly. It is also advisable for each partner to be treated to make sure there is no cross infection.
