What You Need to Know About Chlamydia
gt;gt; Rachel Gorwitz: Hello,I am Rachel Gorwitz, Medical Officer in the Divisionof STD Prevention at the Centers for Disease Controland Prevention. Although most Chlamydia casesreported are among teens and young adults, any sexuallyactive person can get this sexually transmitteddisease or STD. In fact, CDC estimates thereare nearly 3 million new cases of Chlamydia each year.
People get Chlamydia byhaving vaginal, anal, or oral sex withsomeone who has this STD. Most people withChlamydia have no symptoms which is why the infectionoften goes undiagnosed. If symptoms occur, theymay not appear until weeks after having sex withsomeone who is infected. Women with Chlamydia may havean abnormal vaginal discharge or burning sensationwhen urinating.
Men with Chlamydia may havea discharge from the penis or a burning sensationwhen urinating. Even when a chlamydial infectiondoes not cause symptoms, if left untreated it can go on to cause pelvic inflammatorydisease, chronic pelvic pain or make it difficultor impossible for a woman to get pregnant. CDC recommends thatsexually active women
under age 26 be testedfor Chlamydia every year. It is important forboth men and women to discuss their sexualhistory with their physician to determine if they shouldbe tested for Chlamydia. Chlamydia can be cured easilywith antibiotics prescribed by a healthcare provider. Even after treatment thougha person can be reinfected if they have sex withsomeone who has Chlamydia.
So it's important that sexpartners are also treated. Learn more about Chlamydia andother STDs at cdc.govSTD.
