Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted infection in people under the age of 25. It affects both males and females and because it often has no early symptoms, it can go undiagnosed for some time. About 1 in 10 sexually active young people test positive, yet did not know they had it. If left untreated it can cause pelvic inflammatory disease and infertility. As part of the Central Nottingham Chlamydia Screening Programme, we are now offering Chlamydia screening to any patients aged 15 - 24. the test is self-taken and full instructions given. Kits are available from your nurse, doctor or reception, on request.
If you have any concerns or questions with regards to sexual health, irrespective of age, please make an appointment with your doctor or nurse
