Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease which some people may carry without showing symptoms. This makes chlamydia one of the more common STDs because carriers may feel healthy and be unaware that they are infected.
Chlamydia symptoms usually develop about 1-3 weeks after exposure. Men and women show different signs of infection:
• Abdominal pain during menstrual periods, sexual intercourse, or when urinating
• Vaginal discharge, itching or burning in and around the vagina
• Bleeding between periods
• Abnormal discharge from the penis
• Burning and itching of the urethral opening
• Pain during urination
• Pain and swelling of the testicles
In women, chlamydia can cause pelvic inflammatory disease and subsequent problems with fertility and pregnancy. Untreated chlamydia in men may cause damaging infections of the urethra or epididymis (the tube that transports sperm), or inflammation of the rectum.1
