How to test for chlamydia

To find out for certain if you have chlamydia there are simple and painless tests available.

The Terrance Higgins Trust says a sample of cells can be collected for testing in two ways:

  • Giving a sample of urine
  • Gently wiping a swab (small cotton bud) over the area that might be infected.

Tests are available to buy online, but you should check for a reliable website.

GP surgeries, community contraceptive services and local genitourinary medicine also offer chlamydia testing.
