Remove quickly all the uncertainties of a possible chlamydial infection.
Chlamydia infections are among the most common sexually transmitted disease (STD) in men and women. Chlamydia are spherical bacteria that can survive in host cells. Many of the people infected with chlamydia have no symptoms and therefore do not notice their inflammation. Unfortunately, this increases the risk of chronic disease and undetected spread of virus.
Chlamydia can be very effectively treated with certain antibiotics. A partner therapy is necessary to prevent re-infection. The doctor will take – two to four weeks after treatment – a control smear to rule out the presence of other agents – depending on the type of therapy. After three months, a further control examination will be done. As an existing chlamydial infection facilitates the infection with additional pathogens, the European guidelines recommend that each chlamydia infected person should be also tested out for other sexually transmitted diseases.
Chlamydia can be transmitted through sex: oral, vaginal and anal. Chlamydia can also be transmitted during birth from mother to child.
Problem: about 75% of women and 50% of men have no symptoms when they are infected with chlamydia. This disease can cause the following symptoms:
* Abnormal vaginal discharge
* Burning sensation when urinating
* Abdominal pain
* Lower back pain
* Pain during sex
* Bleeding between menstrual periods
* Discharge from the penis
* Burning sensation when urinating
* Itching around the opening of the penis
* Pain and swelling in the testicles
Men and women:
* Rectal pain, discharge and / or bleeding
* Sore throat
These symptoms usually occur within 1 to 3 weeks after infection.
Complications of Chlamydia infection: Untreated chlamydia infections can lead to serious consequences in the reproductive and other health problems, both short and long term. Just as the disease itself, the damage caused by chlamydia is “silent” and is not noticed.
In women, untreated infection can spread into the uterus or fallopian tubes and cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). This occurs in up to 40 percent of women with untreated chlamydia. PID can cause permanent damage to the fallopian tubes, uterus and surrounding tissue. The damage can lead to chronic pelvic pain, infertility and potentially fatal ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterus). Women infected with chlamydia are up to five times more frequently infected with HIV when they are exposed to the virus.
In men, the infection sometimes spreads to the epididymis (the tube that carries sperm from the testicles), what causes pain, fever and infertility.
Genital chlamydial infection can also lead to arthritis, which may be accompanied with skin lesions, eye infections and urethritis (Reiter’s syndrome).
