Treatment

Treatment is free – it will not cost you anything to get treated!

  • The treatment for Chlamydia is a simple course of antibiotics, which are usually four tablets taken at the same time.
  • If you are pregnant or not able to take these tablets, you may be given a longer course of antibiotics.
  • For treatment to be effective, you MUST take all the tablets you are given and follow the advice given by the doctor / nurse

To make sure that you do not get re-infected – it is important to:

  • Make sure your partner(s) is also seen and treated.
  • Don’t have sex (oral, vaginal or anal) until seven days after you and your partner have been treated.
