    Chlamydia is usually treated with a single antibiotic dose. If complications have occurred from the infection (e.g. PID) a longer antibiotic treatment may be necessary. To avoid re-infection it is important to treat current sexual partners and to abstain from unprotected sex until treatment is completed. People are usually asked to return to their health practitioner following treatment to ensure the infection has been cleared.

    Because chlamydia often does not have symptoms it is important to contact sexual partners from the previous six months. Health professionals can provide support and assistance to do this, including anonymously if required. The Let Them Know website www.letthemknow.org.au helps people notify partners personally or anonymously via letter, SMS, email or in person.

    For more information Queensland women can call the Health Information on 3839 9988 or 1800 017 676 (toll free outside Brisbane).
