Most young women come to a gynecologist's office for the first time because they are looking for a suitable Contraceptive method method. In this case, we will provide you with comprehensive advice and help you make a decision. Often there are also problems with the cycle or there is a suspicion of a vaginal infection that needs to be clarified gynecologically.
Chlamydia test for women under 25
For all our young patients (up to the age of 25), we perform an annual chlamydia test, which is covered by statutory health insurance.
Genital chlamydia infection is the most common sexually transmitted bacterial disease worldwide. The infection usually runs its course without any particular symptoms, but in women there is a risk of pelvic inflammatory disease. Consequential diseases may include sterility and chronic lower abdominal pain. The test is performed with the help of a urine sample, as pathogens can be reliably detected in urine. Chlamydia infection can be treated with antibiotics and usually heals without consequences. However, if damage has already occurred before treatment, it cannot be reversed by treatment.
