A very common sexually transmitted infection, Chlamydia can be completely asymptomatic or include symptoms that can be very painful to women. Long term, the illness can even reduce fertility or lead to complications in childbirth. By using a reliable chlamydia treatment, women can return to full health quickly and easily.
Chlamydia is caused by a bacteria found in vaginal fluids and semen, which can live inside the cells of the urethra, rectum, cervix and occasionally in the eyes or throat. The chlamydia virus can present painful symptoms, or be completely asymptomatic – but in either instance, can lead to more serious complications in later life.
Chlamydia treatment is usually by way of an antibiotic that can help to rid the body of the illness. Usually, Vibramycin (Doxycycline) or Zithromax (Azithromycin) can be prescribed, either as one powerful dose in the case of Zithromax or as a longer course of treatment for approximately one week.
If you have been diagnosed with chlamydia, you should be sure to avoid further unprotected sex and to inform all recent sexual partners of your condition.
The chlamydia infection is most often transmitted during unprotected sexual activity, including use of unclean sex toys. To that end, the best route to avoiding chlamydia is the regular use of barrier contraception such as condoms.
Being completely without symptoms in some cases, it is possible that you could catch chlamydia from somebody who does not even know that they have the illness.
In addition, pregnant women can pass on chlamydia to their baby.
Chlamydia is sometimes called a ‘silent infection’ because it presents no symptoms at all. However, in some cases, women may experience:
If a chlamydia infection occurs in the rectum, this can present symptoms of pain, itching and sometimes discharge. Infections in the eyes can produce painful, sore and irritated eyes.
If left untreated, chlamydia can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), which may in turn cause ectopic pregnancy, blocked fallopian tubes or long-term pain in the pelvis.
Regardless of the severity of your symptoms, you can treat chlamydia with an effective anti-biotic medicine.
The best method for avoiding all sexually transmitted infections including chlamydia is the continued use of barrier contraception such as a condom during all types of sexual intercourse.
