Most people who have Chlamydia have no symptoms, but the infection can be transmitted anyway. If you take the test and discover that you are infected, the condition can usually be effectively cured with appropriate antibiotics, if detected in time.

Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted infection in Sweden, usually transmitted through intercourse. In those cases where symptoms are exhibited, this usually occurs after a couple of weeks with the most common symptom being a painful or burning sensation when urinating. There may also be some pain and swelling of the joints. Chlamydia is a disease that comes under the Communicable Diseases Act which stipulates that the infection must be traced. The best protection against Chlamydia is to use a condom.
