What is Chlamydia?
Chlamydia is caused by a bacterium called Chlamydia trachomatis. The bacteria are found in the semen of men and vaginal fluids of women who have the infection. Chlamydia is easily passed from one person to another through unprotected sex (not using a condom).
Genital Chlamydia is the most common bacterial sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the UK, being most common in men and women under 25.
Chlamydia is known as the 'silent' infection due to its lack of noticeable symptoms. If left untreated it can spread to other parts of the body and cause pain, especially in the abdomen, and may lead to infertility.
Most people have no symptoms, so most people will not know they have it. However, 25 per cent of women and 50 per cent of men do develop symptoms.
