Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted infection, affecting 3 to 4 million people each year. It is a bacterial infection usually spread through unprotected vagina, anal or oral sex. Chlamydia cannot be passed on through ‘casual contact’ i.e. you will not contract chlamydia from kissing, sharing baths, towels or toilet seats. If left untreated Chlamydia may lead to more serious complications. In men the infection may spread to the testicles causing epididymitis, leading to infertility if left untreated long enough. If left untreated in women, chlamydia may lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, causing scarring inside a woman’s reproductive organs. This may result in complications and difficulties in becoming pregnant.
In many cases the infection does not cause any symptoms. Symptoms may include however a burning sensation when urinating and discharge from the gentials. Less common symptoms include lower abdominal pain. Men may also experience tender or swollen testicles.
