Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted disease in Denmark. Most women and men who are infected with chlamydia do not notice anything about the infection. Symptoms of Chlamydia may be swelling, burning in urination and spot bleeding. Consistent use of condom protects with Chlamydia. Your doctor may subscribe effective medicine against Chlamydia.
Chlamydia infection is frequent. It is estimated that 10-15 % of all young people (15-25 years) are infected with Chlamydia - most of them just do not know.
Chlamydia is transmitted by intercourse without the use of a condom.
Chlamydia may show signs of embarrassment, burning urination, spot bleeding (especially after intercourse) and abdominal pain. More than half of all women who are infected with Chlamydia do not notice it and most infected men have no symptoms at all. Since only a few may feel that they have chlamydia, the infection will spread rapidly.
An infection with Chlamydia may lead to decreased fertility - impaired ability to conceive.
Your risk of being infected with Chlamydia is greatest when you change a partner and do not use a condom. Therefore, it is a good idea to use condoms consistently when intercourse. If you and your partner want to "throw" the condom, it is recommended that both of you first be examined and perhaps treated with Chlamydia at your doctor.
If you have sustained discharge or you think you may have been infected with Chlamydia, go to your own doctor. Rather once more! There is an effective medicine for you and your partner.
