Chlamydia infection is a bacterial infection. Since it is a sexually transmitted disease, both men and women may get the infection through sexual contacts. People who are infected with chlamydia infections often do not have obvious symptoms.
The cause of the infection are bacteria, which are called chlamydia trachomatis. The bacteria are passed onto someone else through contact with the genitals or the rectum during sexual intercourse. They lead to infections in the urogenital tract or rectal area. In men they can cause urethritis, epididymitis, proctitis and prostatitis. In woman they can cause urethritis, cervicitis and pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). If a woman has PID, it may lead to infertility or problems during pregnancy. If a pregnant woman is infected with chlamydia, the baby may get a bacterial eye infection or pneumonia. Generally speaking, chlamydia infection often does not cause obvious symptoms. These minor symptoms may include lower abdominal pain, pain during urination, yellow-whitish discharge and itchiness of genitals and, rarely, fever and chills.
Since the cause of chlamydia infection is bacteria, the treatment is mainly antibiotics. It is strongly recommended to avoid sexual contact during the period of treatment and it is necessary that the partner is treated as well. A regular follow-up is necessary for people who had chlamydia infection to avoid the recurrence, especially women who wish to fall pregnant.
