Chlamydia - Symptoms & Treatment


Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) induced by a bacteria known as Chlamydia trachomatis. A lot of people who are at risk of this contagion don't really know what it is, or understand it, even if they are aware of the name. Most women (and some men) have asymptomatic chlamydia infections, and yearly testing for the illness is suggested for all sexually active women age 25 and under. Yearly testing is also suggested for women over age 25 that have risk factors for chlamydia (e.g., those with new partners and those with many sex partners). The term chlamydia usually refers to Chlamydia trachomatis, the STD. But two other types of these bacteria also can escort to infection: Chlamydia pneumoniae, which can be extend through coughing and sneezing, and Chlamydia psittaci, which birds can pass to humans.

Chlamydia can be treated, but it frequently has no symptoms in either men or women, so remains unnoticed. Most women with Chlamydia (and about half of men) do not incident symptoms. In a few women, infection can harm the Fallopian tubes, which conduct eggs from the ovaries to the womb. This can impede the tubes working suitably and they can become completely blocked. If symptoms do occur, they generally appear 1 to 3 weeks after infection. Infection may only be identifying once chlamydia has escort to complications - when treatment can occasionally be too late to stop permanent damage. Chlamydia is best identifying from swab tests, composed from the cervix in women or the urethra in men.

While they have the capability to halt growth of the organism (i.e. are microbistatic), these antibiotics do not eradicate the bacteria. Once treatment is stopped, the bacteria will embark on to grow once more.
