What is Chlamydia?
Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted infection.
Untreated chlamydia can cause infection in other parts of the body, sometimes with damage or long term complications such as infertility in both men and women.
Most people do not have symptoms however some can include:
- A vaginal discharge that is different than usual
- The need to wee more often

- Pain in the pelvis or lower abdomen
- Any irregular bleeding between periods or after sex
- A discharge from the tip of the penis
