About Chlamydia & Gonorrhoea
What are Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea?
Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea are two of the most common STIs in the UK. Chlamydia is caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis and Gonorrhoea by Neisseria gonorrhoeae. While they don’t necessarily cause symptoms or signs of the infection, they can both lead to serious health issues if left untreated.
Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea are passed from person to person through sexual contact. This includes any contact with infected semen/ejaculate/pre-ejaculate/discharge in the throat, vagina or rectum. These infections are commonly spread through unprotected oral, vaginal or anal sex, or sharing sex toys. Moreover, because of the lack of symptoms in some people, Chlamydia and Gonorrhoea are very easily passed on to sexual partners without realising it.
