Men more likely to have chlamydia

7th April 2010

According to a survey carried out by Lloydspharmacy, 13% of men who bought an online test for chlamydia tested positive for the infection, compared with 6% of women.

Although men had higher amounts of infection, 72% had never had a STI screening, compared to 62% of women. Clare Kerr, head of sexual health at Lloydspharmacy, who carried out the survey, said: "This is particularly worrying as many STIs don’t have any obvious symptoms, so men could be putting both themselves and their partners at risk by delaying tests.”
