Are you between 15 and 24 and sexually active?
If so, have you been tested for Chlamydia yet?
It doesn’t hurt and you can do it in private. All you have to do is pee into a pot. But it could save your fertility!
Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted infection and most people who have it don’t know they’ve got it. Untreated Chlamydia can lead to long-term problems such as infertility.
The test and treatment is free, confidential and painless. Test kits can be picked up from a number of health venues across the county and the test can be completed at home. Anyone taking a test can choose how they receive their results – either by text, phone or letter.
Treatment is quick and easy and is usually a simple course of four tablets. If your results are positive we will also discuss how we may contact recent partner(s) to offer them testing and treatment. We will not discuss your infection unless you say it’s OK to do so.
To find your local clinic, or request a test kit, call 01773 525069 or go to www.fancyaquickie.org.uk
Up For a LARC?
LARC stands for Long Acting Reversible Contraception, but it could just as easily stand for Lasting and Reliable Contraception - because that's exactly what it is! A LARC offers really good ways of protecting yourself against pregnancy. Unlike the pill and condoms they last for long periods of time, so with one treatment you can protect yourself for months or even years. You can find out more at the LARC website here.
