Ryan Ellis had celebrated his 18th birthday on New Year’s Eve. Now he had severe pain every time he went for a wee and ‘two swollen balls that hurt like hell’. After a bit of discrete prying by Dr Lewis, he admitted to a new girlfriend.
“I am afraid it’s chlamydia, Ryan.” Dr Lewis patted his knee sympathetically. “I can’t think of any other explanation.”

Ryan’s situation was complicated by the fact that he still had his old girlfriend.
“You’ve got two tricky telephone calls to make, Ryan.”
