Chlamydia Treatment

Chlamydia treatment in Chennai

Chlamydia is among the most commonly transmitted sexually diseases (STIs). Chlamydia can be contracted through sexual relations, anal sex or oral sexual contact. Since chlamydia rarely causes symptoms, many with chlamydia do not know about that they are infected and can unknowingly transmit it to others. Chlamydia Trachomatis is a common problem for young women; however, it can also affect females and males and all categories of age. It's relatively easy to treat however, if it's not treated properly, it can cause more serious health issues.

Causes of Chlamydia:

Chlamydia-related infections can be spread by sexual contact, as vaginal fluids or semen containing the bacterium that causes chlamydia is transferred from one person to another. Sexual contact can refer to all types of sex, which includes sexual contact that isn't involving ejaculation or penetration. There are many ways in which the fluids of one's genitals could transmit the chlamydia-causing bacteria.
Early-stage Chlamydia trachomatis infections often cause few or no signs and symptoms. Even when signs and symptoms occur, they're often mild, making them easy to overlook.

Signs and symptoms of Chlamydia trachomatis infection can include:

  • Painful urination
  • Vaginal discharge in women
  • Discharge from the penis in men
  • Painful sexual intercourse in women
  • Bleeding between periods and after sex in women
  • Testicular pain in men

Chlamydia trachomatis can also infect the rectum, either with no signs or symptoms or with rectal pain, discharge, or bleeding. You also can get chlamydial eye infections (conjunctivitis) through contact with infected body fluids.

Diagnosis & Treatment for Chlamydia:

Chlamydia can be eliminated by antibiotics within 2 or 3 weeks. However, don't stop using your medication because you feel better. Discuss with your doctor the next steps necessary to make sure that your illness is gone once you've completed taking your medication. A part of your treatment must also include avoiding sexual interactions that may cause you to be re-infected, as well as ensuring that any sexual partners that could be affected receive treatment as well. It is recommended that you:

  • Do not engage in sexual activity until the infection has gone away. Beginning treatment doesn't mean you're free of infection. Use all medications as the prescription of your doctor, and stay clear of all sexual contact for a while.
  • Get in touch with all your sexual partners. Tell any sexual partners who have been with you for the past 3 months you've contracted the virus to ensure that they get checked, too.
  • Test yourself for other STIs (HIV/AIDS as well as syphilis and herpes, gonorrhea, etc.). It's normal to suffer from several STIs and it's essential to get treatment tailored to the specific infection. Antibiotics are able to eliminate the disease, but they aren't able to erase any damage that bacteria could have caused to your body prior to treatment. This is the reason it's vital to be regularly screened for chlamydia. You should see your doctor when you first notice symptoms and to seek treatment right away if you're affected.
