You can perform an at home Chlamydia test by ordering a test kit from a range of free services that you can find on the internet. The test kit will be delivered in the post. All you need to do then is take a sample of your urine or perform a swab and send the test kit back to the testing provider in the mail. These services are free and confidential and you’ll receive your results between 7 and 14 working days later.

It is a good idea to be tested for Chlamydia since if left untreated it can cause significant negative effects on your health. For example, it can result in infertility where you have difficulty, or are unable to, conceive. It can also cause a disease called reactive arthritis which affects the joints between your bones; this is a painful condition that can lead to ongoing problems.
