Who should be tested for chlamydia
You should get tested, whatever your age or sex, in particular if:
- You are considering starting a family and want to check you have no chlamydial infection that could affect your fertility.
- You've had unprotected sex and are worried you may have chlamydia.
- You've changed sexual partner.
- 3 months after treatment for chlamydia infection if you are under 25.
The results of the home chlamydia test are completely confidential and will not be passed on to your GP. You are given a unique code and password to maintain this confidentiality.
We provide a 7-day course of antibiotic doxycycline.
Doxycycline is currently (February 2019) the recommended first choice antibiotic for the treatment of chlamydia - see latest BASHH guidance.
If you have a positive result it is very likely that your sexual partner(s) will have it too. Partners within the previous three months should be treated to reduce the spread of infection to others and protect them from the complications of chlamydia.
If you have tested positive for chlamydia your partner(s) can also request treatment from your GP, sexual health clinic, or many pharmacies.
If your test is negative, it means you don't have chlamydia. However, you may be at risk of other sexually transmitted infections and so it is important that you visit your GUM clinic to be tested for other STIs. Where a chlamydia result is positive, it is important to have tests for other sexually transmitted diseases.
The home test kit does not detect chlamydia in the mouth or anus.
It takes 2 weeks from infection for a test to become positive. It takes 5 weeks to go negative after successful treatment.
If the result of your test is unclear and is recorded as neither positive or negative, the test should be repeated.Go to www.test.me
