Treatment

Where can I get treated?

What does the treatment involve?

If you test positive for Chlamydia or Gonorrhoea, don't panic! The infection can be treated with a short course of antibiotics. Your sexual health clinic will give you advice about the different types- and which one is best for you.

There may be some side effects from the treatment you are given. All antibiotics will include information on those side effects.

How long before I can safely have sex after treatment?

For Chlamydia you can have sex seven days from the start of your treatment. If you have a partner that has been treated then you must also wait until a week from the start of their treatment, otherwise you run the risk of re-infection.

If you have been treated for Gonorrhoea, you should avoid having sex until it is confirmed that the antibiotics have worked.
