CHLAMYDIA AND YOU
Chlamydia is the most common bacterial sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the UK. In some regions, more than 10 per cent of sexually active young people are infected. Often unaccompanied by any symptoms, chlamydia can lead to the serious complications of infertility or ectopic pregnancy. As with other titles in the STI Alert series, this leaflet answers frequently-asked questions about chlamydia and stresses that confining sexual intimacy to a mutually faithful, lifelong relationship (i.e. marriage), is the surest way of eliminating the risk of infection.
