Uncomplicated Genital Chlamydia in men and women

Opportunistically test all aged 15-25 years.

Refer to Sexual Health Service for partner notification and advice.

In pregnancy or breastfeeding: azithromycin is the most effective option but is ‘off-label’ (recommended by SIGN).  Doxycycline is contra-indicated in pregnancy.

Due to lower cure rate in pregnancy, test for cure 6 weeks after treatment.

Advise to avoid sexual contact until treatment complete (or 7 days after azithromycin).

Consider testing for HIV.
