Testing for chlamydia

For background information about chlamydia please see chlamydia information page.

A chlamydia test kit is delivered in discreet packaging and contains:

  • Instruction leaflet
  • Test request form
  • Urine collection pouch
  • Urine sample tube
  • Sample tube container
  • Pre-paid pre-addressed envelope

The chlamydia test is carried out on a urine sample you collect and then post to the laboratory. The test is a standard lab test for chlamydia and is highly reliable. Results are available online usually within 1-3 working days.

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.

Confidential results

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.

Alternative testing

Chlamydia testing is also available from sexual health clinics, GPs, family planning clinics, young people clinics, some Brook centres and The Terence Higgins Trust.

Treatment

We provide a quick single dose antibiotic azithromycin and the equally effective one week course of antibiotic doxycycline. Doxycycline costs less than azithromycin.

Informing partners

If you have a positive result it is likely that your sexual partner(s) will have it too. Your recent partners 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 get azithromycin from this site, or from your GP, sexual health clinic, or many pharmacies.

Negative results

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.

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 6 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.
