|What are Chlamydia Symptoms?|
While Chlamydia is easy to treat, it is often difficult to know that you have it, as many of the symptoms, particually in woman are asymptomatic (not visable). Often upto 75% of females and 50% of males don't know they have it.
There are laboratory tests to diagnose chlamydia. Some can be performed on urine, other tests require that a specimen be collected from penis or cervix.
Asymptomatic It is called Asymptomatic if there are no symptoms.
In the beginning Chlamydia may not make you feel anything is wrong, so you may not even know you have it It can just come and go. Those who do notice that they have this infection will have certain symptoms for weeks or months, depending on the severity of the infection and whether treatment was undertaken early, or not at all. But, as it gets worse, you will begin to experience different symptoms.
Female Symptoms of Chlamydia
In Pre-puberty Girls Vaginal discharge and odor (Vaginitis)
In Post-puberty Girls Discharge (off-white) and odor which comes from the cervix being infected
In Women Chlamydia is often silent in women, with up to 90% of women asymptomatic. Women can carry the bacteria for months or even years without knowing it. This makes screening very important. In women, the bacteria initially infect the cervix and the urethra (urine canal).
Women who have symptoms might have an abnormal vaginal discharge or a burning sensation when urinating. When the infection spreads from the cervix to the fallopian tubes (tubes that carry fertilized eggs from the ovaries to the uterus), some women still have no signs or symptoms; others have lower abdominal pain, low back pain, nausea, fever, pain during intercourse, or bleeding between menstrual periods. Chlamydial infection of the cervix can spread to the rectum. Symptoms can start to occur within 3 weeks after getting the infection and include the following:
Constant lower abdominal pain
Mild, milky or yellow mucus-like vaginal discharge
Nausea and fever
Pain during urination
Pain during sexual intercourse
Spotting/bleeding between periods
Male symptoms of Chlamydia
Men with signs or symptoms might have a discharge from their penis or a burning sensation when urinating. Men might also have burning and itching around the opening of the penis. Pain and swelling in the testicles are uncommon.
Men or women who have receptive anal intercourse may acquire chlamydial infection in the rectum, which can cause rectal pain, discharge, or bleeding. Chlamydia can also be found in the throats of women and men having oral sex with an infected partner.
Discharge from the tip of the penis
Burning during urination
Itching around the tip of the penis
Testicular pain/swelling (rare)
