Chlamydia Info

Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). It is caused by an infection with the Chlamydia trachomatis bacterium. Women tend to get the disease more often than men, and they are often at risk for repeat infections. Symptoms aren't always apparent, but when they do occur, they may include:
 
  • Abnormal discharge from the penis or vagina
  • A burning sensation when urinating.
 
The sooner chlamydia is diagnosed, the more effective treatment will be and the risk for complications will be reduced. If left untreated, chlamydia can lead to serious reproductive and other health problems.
