Chlamydia spread by ignorance8th January 2010
One in five people are not aware that contracting chlamydia can be harmful to women's fertility.
According to a survey carried out by Populus of 2,000 young people and parents, 65% did not use barrier contraception when they slept with a new partner. Gillian Merron, Public Health Minister, said: "Chlamydia is a silent infection that can have serious consequences. Young people sometimes feel too embarrassed to ask for the test even though they know it is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections in the UK."
