When it comes to STIs, it’s more important than ever that we’re clued up about the risks of catching an infection from a sexual partner. Cases of syphilis are at an all time high in England, and when you use this calculator to work out how many people you have indirectly slept with using protection suddenly becomes imperative – and these smart condoms become a whole lot more attractive.
But considering that chlamydia is actually one of the most common sexually transmitted infections in the UK, how much do you really now about it? Do you know what signs and symptoms to look out for? And are you clued up on how to treat it if you do catch it?
Here’s everything you need to know about the STI that affects around 200,000 people in England every year.
What is chlamydia?
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection (or STI) that can be passed from person to person through unprotected vaginal, anal or oral sex. It is one of the most common STIs, and the NHS reports that the majority of people they treat are sexually active youngsters under 25 years old. However, it is not an ageist condition so it’s important that people of all ages are carefully when it comes to protecting themselves from chlamydia.
It is largely symptomless, which is why it’s so important to get checked regularly because it can have serious implications for women later in life if left untreated. However, some people do experience symptoms so there are things to look out for if you’re concerned you may have chlamydia.
