Yes, the National Chlamydia Screening Programme (NCSP) advise that to reduce your chances of getting chlamydia you should:
use condoms every time you have sex. This can reduce your risk of getting or passing on chlamydia and other sexually transmitted infections (STIs) including HIV.
if you have oral sex, cover the penis with a condom or the female genitals with a latex or polyurethane (plastic) square (dam).
if you are not sure how to use condoms correctly, there are normally instructions in the packet. Alternatively, see the information on condoms, on NHS choices.
each time you have a new sexual partner, both of you should get a chlamydia test.
have a chlamydia test every year while you are under 25.
avoid sharing sex toys. If you do share sex toys, wash them or cover them with a new condom before anyone else uses them.
If you do have chlamydia remember to also
take all the tablets you are given.
tell your partner(s) and advise them to be tested and treated.
The test for chlamydia is simple – just one quick and painless test that you do yourself. You do NOT need to be examined!
