Chlamydia

Chlamydia is one of the most common STDs and is caused by a bacterial parasite called chlamydia trachomatis.

Symptoms
In Men:
  • whitish yellow discharge from the penis
  • frequent burning urination
  • redness at the tip of the penis
In Women:
  • discharge
  • frequent need to urinate
  • mild discomfort often mistaken for vaginitis or menstrual cramps
Babies born to infected mothers may suffer from:
  • eye infections
  • pneumonia

Many women experience no symptoms until they develop complications such as pelvic inflammatory disease, a serious condition which can result in infertility.

Treatment

The disease is diagnosed by a swab test, and treatment is with antibiotics.
