6 Signs You Might Have Chlamydia
Chlamydia is often called the ‘silent infection’ as it’s largely asymptomatic. In fact, most of the approximately 260,000 Australians who currently have the sexually transmitted disease don’t even know it, with around 50 percent of men and 80 percent of women diagnosed without symptoms.
This is particularly worrying for women because if left untreated, chlamydia can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, chronic pelvic pain, ectopic pregnancy and infertility.
These are the most common symptoms of chlamydia to watch out for but given that you might not get them, it’s important to get regular screenings and practice safe sex.
- Abnormal vaginal discharge
- Burning sensation while urinating
- Pain during sex
- Bleeding after sex
- Bleeding or spotting between periods
- Pelvic pain
If you are sexually active and under 25 years of age, it’s strongly advised that you get an annual chlamydia check-up. If it’s caught early enough, chlamydia can be treated with a single round of antibiotics.
