Welcome to the NHS Suffolk
Chlamydia Screening Programme

How do you know you don't have Chlamydia?

Sexually active young people who live in Suffolk and are under the age of 25 years of age are being encouraged to find out if they have a sexually transmitted infection (STI) called Chlamydia and to take a test every year or every time you change sexual partners.

  • Most people won't know that they have the infection as there may be no signs or symptoms.
  • It is estimated that 1 in 12 sexually active young people may have this infection.
  • It is serious as it can cause long term health problems such as infertility (unable to have a baby).
  • Testing is simple and painless - no unpleasant examination or swabs.
  • It is easily treated with antibiotics.
  • Remember - using condoms helps to prevent pregnancy and STIs.

How do I get screened?

If you have no symptoms and would like to get checked for chlamydia then choose any of the options shown on the left of your screen. All testing is FREE and handled in the strictest of confidence, simply select which is best for you. For any other information and advice call us on 01473 228723.

If you are under 16, you can still get a self Chlamydia test but you need to visit one of our community clinics, or see your practice nurse at your GP practice. Both options are confidential.
