Chlamydia Danger Affecting One in Three New Zealand Women

November 06, 2018

Chlamydia. Not often talked about and often misunderstood.

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection that is becoming a bigger problem in New Zealand.

A little-known fact: 1 in 3 women and 1 in 5 men have had Chlamydia by the age of 38 in New Zealand. The rates are possibly even higher in younger people.

Frightening right?

Even more frightening is that most people won't even know they have Chlamydia as it most often has no symptoms. You can remain infectious for months or even years without knowing it.

Worse still, if left untreated, Chlamydia can seriously damage your fertility. It can also be passed to a baby during childbirth causing risk of an eye or lung infection. 

If you're sexually active, your odds of becoming infected with Chlamydia are quite high.

To protect yourself, first of all, it's most important to practice safe sex. Simply use condoms and dams.

Next, get tested regularly. This means testing for STIs every 6 months.

To get tested, your options are:

  1. Visit your GP. They can take a sample of urine or a swab to be sent to a lab. Testing is free or NZ citizens, residents and some work-visa holders, but you'll need to cover the costs of your GP visit plus your time and travel. Results can take up to 10 days to return.
  2. Find and make an appointment at a local sexual health clinic.
  3. Or, test at home with us.

If you want to get tested fast, we've created a complete sexual health testing service that you can do at home without having to go to a doctor. 

We deliver tests to you overnight that you do at home and see your results within 15 minutes. If you test positive you just click to video chat with our doctors right away, right here in New Zealand. If you need treatment, it's delivered to your door or sent to your nearest pharmacy for pickup. 

You can test for Chlamydia plus 4 other STIs with our complete Sorted Package. It's $97 for all tests. Plus you get a doctor's consultation and treatment delivery included. And delivery is free. That's it. $97 all included.

Better still, we'll remind you the moment you should consider testing again. You'll never have to worry about testing or when to test again.

Order a test kit now and we'll deliver it to you tomorrow.
