Most people don’t know when they have chlamydia – around 70% of females and half of all men will show no signs of having the infection. Where the symptoms are present, they are usually mild and often go unnoticed. You may experience unusual vaginal discharge, bleeding between periods or after sex (in women) and pain when urinating.  

The only way to know for sure if you have chlamydia is to get tested. You can do this at your local sexual health or genitourinary (GUM) clinic, or using a self-test kit at home.
