Chlamydia is the most common STI which often affects people under the age of 25. In women symptoms can include lower abdominal pain, bleeding after sex, vaginal discharge and pain when passing urine. Men can experience discharge, testicular tendiness and a burning sensation when urinating. Some men and women may not experience any symptoms at all. Chlamydia can be easily treated with antibiotics.
Chlamydia infections in women may lead to inflammation of the cervix. In men, chlamydia infection can lead to inflammation of the urethra called urethritis.
An untreated chlamydia infection may spread to the uterus or the fallopian tubes, causing salpingitis or pelvic inflammatory disease. These conditions can lead to infertility and increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy.
If a women is infected with chlamydia while pregnant, the infection may cause infection in the uterus after delivery (late postpartum endometritis). In addition, the infant may develop chlamydia-related conjunctivitis (eye infection) and pneumonia.
