Chlamydia: All you need to know about the STI

Chlamydia is often referred to as a ‘silent infection’ because outward symptoms are not seen in the early stages.

Sex without a condom and oral sex without a barrier method are ways a chlamydia can be transmitted.

Symptoms of chlamydia include burning sensation while urinating and abnormal discharge from the penis or vagina, and pain in the lower abdomen.

Abstaining from sexual activity is the only guaranteed way to prevent chlamydia.

A few ways to reduce the risk of infection include using barrier methods like condoms or dental dam during sex.

Get screened regularly for STIs to prevent the transmission of chlamydia.

Since Chlamydia is bacterial in nature, you can use antibiotics to treat it.
