Chlamydia Testing in Vila Meã
Chlamydia is one of the most common STIs in Vila Meã. It is easily passed on from one partner to another during sex. If left untreated it can cause long term health problems and may lead to infertility and other health issues.
You can catch Chlamydia in your genital area, throat (if you gave oral sex) or your rectum (if you received anal sex). You will need to test each area that might have Chlamydia.
A simple urine sample will test for Chlamydia in your genital area. Your Chlamydia test result will be available in Vila Meã in just a few days. If you do test positive, we will help you to access the treatment you need to get better.
Chlamydia often does not have any symptoms. The only way to know if you are infected is to get tested in your nearest clinic in Vila Meã.

What is the difference between and STD and an STI?
Sexually Transmitted Infections (STIs) and Sexually Transmitted Diseases (STDs) are ultimately the same thing. The term STI has become more commonly used, as the word infection is not as daunting as the word disease. By using the word infection in place of the word disease, people are encouraged to get tested more regularly and to not be afraid of the result.
If you develop symptoms such as itching, soreness when urinating or blisters on the genital area, these are good indicators that you have an STI. Ignoring these symptoms can increase your chances of further serious health complications.
That is why regular testing in Vila Meã is imperative especially after a new sexual encounter. Better2Know’s wide range of sexual health testing in Vila Meã will provide you with the information you need, whether you have an STI, STD or even nothing!
What should I do if I have an STI?
Do not worry if you have tested positive for an STI in Vila Meã. Better2Know’s team of sexual health advisors and doctors are on hand to support and guide you through the next steps.
First, you should stop all sexual activity and inform any recent sexual partners of your result. You can do this anonymously with Better2Know’s partner notification system available in your secure patient area.
Your local team of advisors in Vila Meã will then be able to help you organise your onward treatment and further testing if necessary. If you would prefer, your advisors can help you speak to other medical professionals in Vila Meã to give you the peace of mind you require.
