The full name for this nasty disease is Chlamydia Trachomatis, the disease is not all that hard to treat but can have serious downsides if left without treatment for any length of time. It may not surprise you that Chlamydia is the most sexually transmitted disease in the United Stateds. and this is likely similar to other parts of the world. Individuals who have a lot of sexual partners are the ones most at risk of contracting Chlamydia.
Chlamydia is often accompanied by some other sexually transmitted diseases. If you think you have Chlamydia then you might as well get tested for other common sexually transmitted diseases.
Focusing on women’s health regular checkups for STDs will help you avoid the disease that is contracted by 50% of women before they reach the age of 30. Ouite often a person who has Chlamydia may not even realise until month’s later. You do not want to leave your Chlamydia without treatment beacuse it has been known to cause infertility.
By being careful with your sexual habits now you will make sure that you have the option to have children when you are older. It is not uncommon for a person to go most of their life without realising that they have become infertile from a Chlamydia infection.
As I said before it is best to get checked on at least a semi regular basis because 75% of women and 50% of men who have the disease show no symptoms at all.
When caught early Chlamydia can be resolved with a short period on antibiotics. Even in the case where you display no symptoms of the disease it is always a good idea to take the medicine to be safe. If you suspect you may be pregnant ensure that you make your doctor aware of this so he can alter your treatment accordingly.
