Chlamydia and gonorrhea testing

Klamydia- och gonorrétest - engelskaThe content concerns Jönköpings län

If you have had unprotected sex and think that you have contracted chlamydia or gonorrhea, it is a good idea to get tested in order to get treatment as quickly as possible. In order for the test to show clearly whether or not you have been infected, you must wait at least one week after possible infection.

Testing for chlamydia/gonorrhea and treatment are free, whether you do the test at a clinic or online. If the test shows that you have chlamydia, you need to get treatment at a health centre (vårdcentral), youth clinic (ungdomsmottagning) or sexual health clinic (venerologmottagning). You will also have to notify any sexual partners. You can read more about sexual diseases, treatment and partner notification at Youmo.se.
