Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) in the UK and can be treated and cured fully with a course of antibiotics. Usually diagnosed in younger men and women between the ages of 16 and 25, chlamydia and its symptoms can affect all ages and is most commonly spread through unprotected sex.
For many, the STI is particularly hazardous because 75% of those infected do not experience any chlamydia symptoms. Whilst there are no symptoms for many, deciding not to treat many sexually transmitted infections including chlamydia can lead to serious health problems like infertility. The good news is that there are chlamydia treatments available to buy right here at euroClinix that can cure the infection completely.

Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted infection (STI), particularly in sexually active young adults between the ages of 16-25 years in the UK. As chlamydia is a bacterial infection, a course of tablets can cure it completely.
Chlamydia is a largely asymptomatic STI highlighting the importance of getting tested and buying antibiotics if the tests come back positive. At euroClinix, you can order medication online in the form of Azithromycin and Doxycycline. Both are antibiotic tablet treatments lasting between 5-7 days and this is the only proven treatment to cure chlamydia. If you're wishing to buy treatment for chlamydia, you can do so by completing a consultation.
The bacterium that causes this infection is called chlamydia trachomatis. This bacterium can live inside the vagina or the penis, and can be found in male semen and female vaginal fluids of infected individuals; hence the increased risk of contracting the STI through unprotected sex. It can be spread through unprotected vaginal sex, but also oral and anal sex as well. You are also at risk if you share sex toys with an infected individual without suitable precautions taken beforehand. Whilst the probability of contracting this STI is higher if you have multiple sexual partners, the reality is one time unprotected can leave you exposed to chlamydia as well as other STIs.
You can significantly reduce your chances of contracting the chlamydia infection, as well as other STIs, by having protected sex. The most effective way to prevent chlamydia is to wear a condom (male or female) whilst having sexual intercourse. This includes during foreplay and oral. Keeping sex toys clean and using dental dams is also sensible, especially if you're not 100% certain regarding the sexual health of yourself or your partner.
It is also encouraged to visit the sexual health clinic or GUM Clinic for a check-up if you have had unprotected sex.
Chlamydia symptoms are not visible in the majority of cases, which is why it is important to get tested if you have had unprotected sex. This accounts for 75% of women and is also the case for 50% of men who contract the infection, however, there are some chlamydia symptoms that you can watch out for.
These symptoms can also be caused by other conditions, so it is important to get tested if they occur.
Chlamydia testing is openly available for free at your local sexual health clinic or GUM clinic. This can be done through a urine sample or a swab test, meaning you needn't have a physical examination from the medical professional. If you are under 25 years, you can collect a free test from the sexual health clinic, GUM Clinic, often at your local doctor surgery or in certain pharmacies and beauty stores around the UK. Instructions are included in the test package and you can receive your results through text message.
Testing for chlamydia as well as other STIs is essential to avoid the infection from spreading, but to also avoid the long-term complications chlamydia can pose to your health.
If you don't seek medication and leave chlamydia untreated, it can lead to long-term problems for both men and women. For women, a common complication is inflammation of the ovaries, uterus and Fallopian tubes, known as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).
This can lead to infertility and scarring, and can make you more susceptible to other infections. Untreated chlamydia in men can cause the sperm production to decrease, and you may also experience inflammation of the sperm tubes and testicles, in addition to swelling, redness and pain on the scrotum.
The most commonly prescribed chlamydia treatment is in the form of oral tablets Azithromycin, which is taken in a five-day treatment course, with 500mg taken in a single dose on day one and one 250mg dose taken daily for four days to successfully treat the infection. This is more commonly associated with penile and vaginal based infections.
However, in the case of ano-rectal chlamydia, Doxycycline is prescribed as a more suitable treatment option. In the case of both types of the infection, both medications should be taken simultaneously.
Both these medications are clinically proven to cure chlamydia completely when taken correctly and can be issued online by a UK registered doctor.
Doxycycline and Azithromycin are available to buy online at euroClinix. After you have completed your free online consultation, a doctor will review the information and decide whether the treatment you have selected is safe for you. If it is, you will be issued a prescription that will be dispensed by our registered pharmacy.
Your medication will be sent to you via free overnight delivery so you can start your course of chlamydia treatment as soon as possible.
