Details
Who should take the test?

Chlamydia is the most commonly occurring sexually transmitted infection. Therefore, it is important to get tested for this bacterial sexually transmitted infection both when suspected and as a preventive measure.

Chlamydia infections are among the most common sexually transmitted infections worldwide. In about eight out of ten cases, infections in women occur without symptoms, making them easily overlooked. Untreated chlamydia infections are considered the most common cause of acquired infertility, as the infection can lead to adhesions in the fallopian tubes.

Our Chlamydia Test for Women is suitable for sexually active women who want to monitor their sexual health. Women under 25 years old and older women with new or multiple sexual partners should get tested for chlamydia and gonorrhea annually.

Any Questions?

Here are some of the most frequently asked questions regarding this test. Your question is missing? Please contact us at:

What is chlamydia and why is it important to test for it?

Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. It's crucial to test for it because it often presents without symptoms, yet untreated infections can lead to serious health complications and can be passed on to sexual partners.

Who should consider taking the Chlamydia Test for Women?

Any sexually active woman, particularly those under 25 years old and those with multiple sexual partners, should consider getting tested for chlamydia regularly.

What are the symptoms of chlamydia in women?

Chlamydia in women can manifest in various ways, including a burning sensation during urination, increased vaginal discharge, and spotting or bleeding between periods. Chronic lower abdominal pain may also occur, along with potential complications such as pelvic inflammatory disease, leading to chronic pelvic pain.

What happens if I get infected with chlamydia during pregnancy?

Infection with chlamydia during pregnancy can cause inflammation of the cervix and uterine lining, increasing the risk of complications such as preterm birth. The risk of transmitting the bacteria to the baby is 50 to 70 percent. Typical symptoms in newborns include conjunctivitis or otitis media, among others. Additionally, if the child inhales contaminated vaginal fluid during birth, it can lead to severe pneumonia.

Why does a Chlamydia infection often lead to infertility in women?

This is because 8 out of 10 women have no symptoms, which means the infection goes unnoticed and untreated. The bacteria can then continue to ascend unchecked. The inflammation then spreads to the uterine lining, the fallopian tubes, and ovaries. The consequences of such a long undetected infection include chronic lower abdominal pain and, in the worst case, infertility. That's why regular testing for chlamydia should be done even without any indications.
