You cannot fully protect yourself against Chlamydia, but you can lower your chances of getting the bacterium by (nhs.uk, 2022):
✔ Using condoms. This does help a lot, but they do not cover all the skin around your genitals, so you don’t have full protection.
✔ Limiting your number of sexual partners. This reduces your chances of contracting an infection as your exposure to the bacterium is reduced (CDC, 2022).
✔ Regular testing. Testing for Chlamydia and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) is important, especially if you are sexually active. Regular testing can help detect and treat Chlamydia early before it causes serious health problems (CDC, 2022). Have you booked your test at our labs yet?
