If you have recently had unprotected sex or feel you were exposed to a sexually transmitted infection (STI), you should use Instant Consult to effortlessly connect with a doctor via video call who can give you a referral for an online chlamydia test.

This STI is caused by the bacteria known as chlamydia trachomatis and affects both men and women. It is easily the most commonly reported STI in adults under 30 and the most common amongst the Australian population. Luckily, this infection is normally treatable with antibiotics.

The infection is highly contagious, and you should seek peace of mind by getting an online chlamydia test referral from Instant Consult before pursuing any new sexual relationships. If you have a long-term partner, you should both get tested and seek clarification about each other’s sexual exclusivity.

What type of symptoms should you look for?

This is where things can get tricky!

One of the most notorious facts people are confronted with when they search for ‘chlamydia testing near me’ is the fact that the infection will often not produce any noticeable symptoms. The problem is that this can cause people to never even realise they have the infection, causing it to fester and cause long-term complications while they unwittingly continue spreading it.

Naturally, the earlier you get a referral for an online chlamydia test the earlier you can detect the infection and get it appropriately treated with antibiotics. Remember; you can still transmit it even if you show no symptoms.

When symptoms do manifest it is normally several weeks following exposure.

Men and women can often experience symptoms of this infection differently. If you experience any of the following symptoms you should seek out chlamydia testing by talking to one of our doctors via video call.

Women

  • Strange vaginal discharge
  • Irregular bleeding in-between menstrual cycles
  • Pain and bleeding during or following intercourse
  • Pain, discomfort and burning when urinating
  • More frequent need to urinate
  • ain or cramping in the lower abdominal area or pelvis

Men

  • Pain, discomfort and burning when urinating
  • Watery or mucus-like discharge from the tip of the penis
  • Swollen testicles that are sore, usually one of the two

Keep in mind that it is incredibly common for neither men or women who have been exposed to the infection to develop any symptoms. If you fear you have been exposed but don’t feel any symptoms, it is not a guarantee you are free of the infection.

It is also possible to experience an infection of the rectum (proctitis) from anal sex with someone who has been exposed and it can spread from genital areas to the rectum. Symptoms included discharge of pus and mucus as well as painful bleeding in severe cases.

Throat infections can occur from oral sex with an infected individual but will usually not produce noticeable symptoms. Conjunctivitis can occur if infected genital fluid comes into contact with the eyes.

Long-term complications

Women who fail to seek out a chlamydia test after exposure and get adequate antibiotic treatment run the risk of developing long-term medical complications including:

  • Infertility due to damaging of the fallopian tubes
  • Chronic pain in the pelvic region
  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
  • Ectopic Pregnancy (foetus develops outside uterus)

Women who are pregnant are also able to transmit the infection to their child and this can cause them to be born with pneumonia or conjunctivitis. Premature birth is also closely linked with this STI.

Keep in mind that even if you get an online chlamydia test referral and are treated with antibiotics, you can still catch the infection all over again. Being successfully treated in the past won’t protect you from new infections.

With that said, you should keep in mind that you can’t catch it from public toilets, pools or regular contact with society – the infection is almost always transmitted via sexual acts. This is why using a condom is essential with new partners.
