Published at : 24-07-2019 View : 19605

  Chlamydia disease caused by the bacterium and Chlamydia trachomatis, which can damage a woman's reproductive organs. Even though symptoms of chlamydia are typically gentle or absent, serious complications that cause irreversible damage. Chlamydia disease is a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI) that's possible to cure but sadly, spotting the symptoms isn't always easy.

Symptoms of Chlamydia Disease

  This is why many infected people remain untreated and might still spread the infection to others.

  In women, chlamydia will cause:

   A burning sensation once urinating

   An abnormal vaginal discharge

   Swollen lymph

   Light vaginal bleeding (especially after intercourse)

   Pain within the pelvis or lower abdomen



  In men, chlamydia will cause:

   An abnormal release of fluid that's not urine or semen (called penile discharge)

   A burning sensation once urinating

Causes of Chlamydia Disease

  Chlamydia disease caused by the bacterium chlamydia trachomatis, is the most typical curable Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI). It can be spread during vaginal, anal or oral sex, and might be passed from an infected mother to her baby during giving birth. The eye infections might also be spread by personal contact, flies, and contaminated towels in areas with poor sanitation.

Risk Factors of Chlamydia Disease

  This bacterium acts more like a virus and it can affect the way the Chlamydia infection is transmitted and the risk factors that are important in acquiring it. A risk factor is something that will increase your chances of getting a disease or condition.

   Being sexually active before age 25

   Multiple sex partners within the past year

   Not using a condom consistently

   A Partner who has a Sexually Transmitted Infection (STI)

   Men who have sex with men

Treatment for Chlamydia Disease

  If your result is positive for chlamydia, it's important that your current sexual partner and any other recent sexual partners you've had are also tested and treated. Treatment for men is equally as important. If you left it untreated, chlamydia can lead to epididymitis and reactive arthritis.
