What is the treatment for Chlamydia?

Chlamydia is most often treated with a basic course antibiotics. Antibiotics are very effective and cure 95% of those infected with Chlamydia if taken correctly.

The two most commonly prescribed antibiotics to treat chlamydia are Azithromycin (a single single dose) or Doxycycline (multiple doses over a week). For those with allergies or women who are pregnant other antibiotics may be prescribed.

If there is a chance that you may have been infected with chlamydia from a partner (for example, if they tested positive) you might be offered treatment before receiving any test results.

If you test positive, free treatment will be arranged via your local screening service.
