Which Symptoms Does Chlamydia Cause?

Dr Louisa Draper

"Chlamydia can cause unusual discharge, but it often remains symptomless. If you think you may be infected, you need to get tested."

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease. The infection is caused by bacteria called chlamydia trachomatis. Chlamydia is very easy to treat with antibiotics, but it can lead to severe complications, including infertility, if left untreated. The symptoms of chlamydia differ and they can be difficult to spot. The most common chlamydia symptom in both men and women is discharge. However, only around 30% of women experience chlamydia symptoms.

Chlamydia does not only spread during vaginal intercourse. It can also be passed on during anal and oral sex. Wearing a condom every time you have sex with a partner whose sexual health status is unclear is the best way to prevent infection.
