Sexually transmitted disease
Our Doctors also offer testing and treatment for a range of sexually transmitted diseases.
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection that often has no symptoms. The test is a simple, painless, self taken swab for females and a urine test for males – ask your GP, nurse or receptionist for a testing kit.
Why should I be tested? To stop the spread of infection & prevent fertility problems in the future. Every time you change your sexual partner you should get a test.
If you would prefer to attend a completely anonymous service, then you can self refer to Leeds Sexual Health service.
