Chlamydia is one of the most spread sexually transmitted disease. Chlamydia trachomatis, or Chlamydia, is the infectious agent.

 

These dangerous bacteria get into the human organism during the unprotected sexual intercourse, as well as HIV. Infection in the domestic environment is also possible, but is unlikely to happen.

The main problem of the Chlamydia diagnostic is that its symptoms are rarely strongly marked.

 

However, the presence of Chlamydia in the body may be identified with laboratory tests, even if there is an absence of explicit symptoms and complaints. This fact once again confirms the well-known truth about the need for periodic STIs testing. In some cases (when suspicions appear) it would be useful to visit the gynecologist, urologist or venereologyst.

Men`s symptoms:

  • Pain while urinating
  • Clear discharge from the penis

 

Diagnosis

 

If a patient has first complains, the doctor should immediately assign a bacterial sowing. This method cannot detect the presence of Chlamydia, but it can demonstrate an increased number of leukocytes. This, in turn, indicates the occurrence of inflammatory processes. If fears are improved, the  patient is directed to pass the tests for sexually transmitted infections.

 

Herpetic infection is more dangerous than you think!

 

Treatment

 

Treatment of Chlamydia for women and men has no particular difference. During the treatment of women the intravaginal suppositories may be used. As a rule, treating from alien bacteria is very effective with the help of medication prescribed by your doctor.

 

Prescribed drugs are depend on the complexity of the disease and may be prescript only by a professional. There is a possibility of complications of inflammatory processes in the uterus and uterine appendages, cervical erosion, Reiter`s syndrome, etc., in case of self-medication. The average treatment course lasts for 7-10 days. Thereafter, it is recommended to make a re-analysis and to consult your doctor.
