Welcome to the RU CLEAR Essex website.
Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and in most cases it has no obvious external symptoms.
Up to one in 12 sexually active young people in Essex are thought to have Chlamydia and – if left undetected and untreated – it can cause serious complications in later life.
If you are sexually active and under 25 years old, you should be tested for chlamydia annually or when you change your sexual partner.
Luckily, it is very easy to treat and cure – the first step is to get tested.
Testing is FREE, simple and painless – so what are you waiting for?
