Chlamydia among 16-24 year-olds is one of the most common STIs. Chlamydia is treated with antibiotics, which if taken properly, treats 95 percent of cases.

If he feels you will have problems, your doctor will give you a longer course of treatment.
The second most common STI is gonorrhoea, which again mostly affects under 25s. Usually, symptoms are more noticeable than chlamydia, but only 1 in 10 cases are asymptomatic.

Gonorrhoea is readily treated with a single injection of antibiotics and a tablet, but it can cause infertility and blindness in babies if left untreated.
