About the Chlamydia Test blood test

Our chlamydia test is quick and simple. We only require a small urine sample from you which can then be processed and checked for any chlamydia infection. 

Sexually Transmitted Diseases are on the rise in the UK, with the last few years marking a significant increase in new infections. Most of these infections are rampant because their symptoms only present in the later stages, allowing the infection to be transmitted multiple times before getting treated. 

The best way to curb transmission of STDs is to get regularly tested to catch the infections early, even before the symptoms start presenting.

Chlamydia, in particular, is hard to detect without having a chlamydia test. Chlamydia, can also be transmitted in pregnancy to the unborn child, making it crucial to get tested and treated if you’re pregnant.

What is Chlamydia?

Chlamydia is one of the most commonly sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) in the UK. It is caused by a bacteria and transmitted through vaginal, oral and anal sex.

People with chlamydia often don’t have outward symptoms in the early stages, but if left untreated, it can lead to more severe health problems like infertility, chronic pain, ectopic pregnancies and arthritis. This is why it is vital to get regular chlamydia testing if you’re sexually active.

How Do You Become Infected with Chlamydia?

Sex without barrier protection and oral sex without a barrier method are the most common ways for a chlamydia infection to be transmitted.

Penetration doesn’t always have to occur for the transmission of the infection to be transmitted. Touching genitals together may be enough to transmit the bacteria, and can also be transmitted during anal sex.

Chlamydia can also be contracted by newborn babies from their mothers during birth. As a safety precaution, most prenatal testing includes chlamydia screening or chlamydia test London

It’s also possible to get a chlamydia infection in the eye through oral or genital contact with the eyes, but it is unusual.

It’s possible to contract chlamydia again after contracting it before and successfully treating it. Chlamydia cannot be transmitted through kissing, hugging or sharing drinking glasses.

Why Might You Need a Chlamydia Test?

Chlamydia is often referred to as a “silent infection.” Most people with a chlamydia infection don’t experience any symptoms. That’s why you need a chlamydia test. Sometimes, the test is the only way to diagnose the infection early before you start presenting with symptoms.

Men, in many cases, don’t notice the symptoms or have no symptoms at all. Therefore, the infection might go unnoticed for prolonged periods before the symptoms become apparent.

Also, when the symptoms of a chlamydia infection present, they mimic those of other conditions and diseases. They include pain, a burning sensation while urinating and an abnormal discharge from the penis or vagina.

A chlamydia test London is the only way you and your healthcare provider can be sure you have a chlamydia infection and prescribe the proper treatment for the infection.

What are the Symptoms of Chlamydia?

symptoms of chlamydia are similar to cervicitis or a urinary tract infection. You may notice;

    • White, yellow or grey discharge from your vagina that might be smelly

    • Pus in your urine (pyuria)

    • An increased need to pee

    • Pain or burning sensation when you pee

    • Painful periods in women

    • Painful intercourse (dyspareunia)

    • Itching or burning in and around your vagina

    • Bleeding between periods

    • Dull pain in the lower part of your abdomen

    • Mucus-like or clear, watery discharge from your penis

    • Discomfort bleeding or mucus-like discharge from the anus (when this is the site of the infection)

    • Sore throat (if chlamydia is contracted by oral sex)

    • Conjunctivitis if the C.trachomatis bacteria enters your eye. Redness, pain and discharge might also be experienced.

You should see your healthcare provider immediately if you notice any of these symptoms. The provider may collect a urine sample for testing or collect a sample of fluid by doing a vaginal/cervical swab.

Benefits of Getting Chlamydia Test

    • Facilitates primary and second prevention of chlamydial infection

    • Prevents transmission of the infection to unborn children in pregnant women

    • Help you get early and effective treatment

    • Protects your fertility because untreated STDs can lead to infertility

I've been to this clinic 4 times over the past 7 years for both pregnancy scans and health scans.... What sterling services they consistently provide! Booking is always easy either online or over the phone, minimum waiting time, and calming environment. What's most impressive is that Mr Usman always explained the scan results thoroughly in a calm and professional way on site and in a report, and quickly spotted issues that both my hospital scan and community clinic scan completely missed (the sonographer at the hospital even asked where I did my scan as she was impressed)! This helped me eventually get timely referral and free from lots of stress. I always feel being well looked after by the team and will wholehearted recommend them to anyone who is looking for efficient, caring and professional more
