What is chlamydia and what are the risks?

 

Chlamydia is one of the most common infections affecting sexually active teenagers and young adults in the UK. It is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) and is caught when engaging in unprotected sexual acts with an infected partner.

 

Chlamydia can often go undetected when first infected as symptoms are challenging to spot. Both men and women will experience both similar and different symptoms. The most common symptom of chlamydia is a burning sensation when urinating. Chlamydia also produces strong smells and unnatural discharges. Women may experience vaginal pain and bleeding between periods; men may experience inflammation and tenderness around the testicles.

 

In its early stages, infection is easy to treat with a brief course of antibiotics. However, if chlamydia is left untreated for some time, complications may occur which may cause serious damage to the body. A female may develop pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which damages the fallopian tubes and lead to infertility.

The tests for chlamydia are easy, painless and usually very reliable. You can choose to be tested even if you have no visible symptoms. The only way to find out if you have chlamydia is to take part in a screening which is conducted through basic urine or saliva swab test. Those under 25 who are currently sexually active with a past of multiple partners should seek out a chlamydia test once every year to spot infection at an early stage.

 

The results of the test will normally be available after 7 to 10 days. If there is a high probability you have contracted chlamydia i.e. if you are experiencing some of the symptoms of the infection or your partner has been diagnosed recently and you’ve had unprotected sex with, you might start treatment before your results have been processed.

 

If you are experiencing any of the above symptoms or want to be on the safe side, visit us at Imaan Pharmacy, Harehills today for our Chlamydia screening and treatment service.

I came in as a first year pharmacy student, looking for work experience, however, having had a few hours of previous experience, at a different pharmacy, I wasn’t expecting to enjoy my time at Imaan pharmacy, Leeds, but as soon as the first day started, I felt positive energy from all the staff (the type of energy I would not have expected from a pharmacy). I’d highly recommend, pharmacy students, looking for experience to get experience here, as it’s not too busy so you won’t feel pressured when completing tasks. Both pharmacists that work here, are helpful and give great advice on career paths as a pharmacist, prereg and what to expect in the up coming years at university. The dispenser that I shadowed, was great at her job and gave me many opportunities to help around the pharmacy and gain experience in many areas of pharmacy. The counter assistant is one of the nicest people you will ever meet and will always ask you if you want a cup of tea. I’m grateful for the experience they gave but also for how patient they were with me, even when I made mistakes.
