Let’s start out by talking about what Chlamydia is and how it can be spread or transmitted.
Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted bacterial infection of the vagina, penis, anus, or throat. Chlamydia is spread through vaginal fluids and semen. Someone can get Chlamydia through unprotected oral sex, vaginal sex, anal sex, and genital to genital contact.
Most of the time, people do not experience symptoms with Chlamydia.
If someone does have symptoms (but they wont always) they could include:
- Painful urination
- Pelvic pain
- Change in discharge (this could mean change in color, odor, consistency, or amount)
- Bleeding during intercourse
The only way someone can know for sure if they have Chlamydia is to get tested. Chlamydia is most commonly tested through urine.
