What Are The Symptoms of Chlamydia?

How is Chlamydia Treated?

Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis.

It's often asymptomatic, earning the nickname "silent infection."

However, there are always exceptions.

When symptoms of Chlamydia do occur, they may include:

Pain or burning during urination

Unusual discharge from the genitals

Pain or discomfort in the lower abdomen

Bleeding between periods (in women)

Painful intercourse (in women)






Chlamydia can be diagnosed through a simple urine test or a swab from the affected area.

The good news is that Chlamydia can be treated with antibiotics.

Treatment usually involves a short course of antibiotics prescribed by a healthcare professional.

Remember, prevention is key! Practice safe sex, use condoms consistently and correctly, and get tested regularly to protect yourself and your partner from STIs.
