Chlamydia

Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted infection in the developed world. Europe has seen a three-fold increase in the number of new cases since 1993, but it’s believed the infection is more commonplace than figures suggest because it’s often asymptomatic. This means many people won’t know they have this infection. It’s most common in young people under the age of 24; this age group represents almost 70% of all chlamydia cases in Europe today.

Luckily there is more than one chlamydia treatment that can cure this STI: a simple dose of antibiotics called Azithromycin or Doxycycline can be prescribed to help clear this infection.

What are the symptoms of chlamydia?

A massive 70% of women and 50% of men infected with this STI show no symptoms at all. This means you can have contracted, and been carrying and spreading the infection, without even realising it.

If a woman displays symptoms, it’s likely they’ll include the following:

  • Vaginal discharge
  • Increased need to urinate
  • Burning when urinating
  • Itchiness
  • Bleeding and/or pain during sex
  • Painful periods
  • High temperature
  • Stomach pain

Men who have chlamydia might display the following symptoms:

  • Increased need to urinate
  • Burning when urinating
  • Watery discharge from penis
  • Burning and itching around the entrance of the penis
  • Testicular pain
  • Swollen testicles

What causes this STI?

A bacterium called chlamydia trachomatis causes this infection. It can live inside the vagina, penis and rectum and is found in traces of semen or vaginal fluids of people who have contracted chlamydia.

This infection can be spread by unprotected vaginal, anal or oral sex or by sharing sex toys.

What are the risks of chlamydia?

The biggest risk of chlamydia is that people often don’t realise they’re infected; it can stay undetected in your body for months, or even years. If left untreated, this STI won’t get better by itself. Chlamydia can cause pelvic inflammatory disease, prevent fallopian tubes from working properly and end up blocking them, all of which can eventually make women infertile.

Chlamydia is the most common cause of inflammation in the testicles and sperm tubes for men under 35, which results in pain, swelling and redness on the scrotum. It can also decrease male fertility by affecting sperm production.

Is a chlamydia treatment available?

Before settling on a chlamydia treatment, it’s important to take a test. You can take an STI test at a doctor’s surgery or sexual health clinic; or you can order one online, post your sample to a laboratory for testing and wait for the results.

Women can either provide a urine sample or have a swab taken from inside the vagina, which will be examined under a microscope. Men will need to give a urine sample.

Luckily this infection is easy to cure; chlamydia treatment involves the use of antibiotics which can clear an infection in just seven days. Azithromycin (for penile/vaginal chlamydia) and Doxycycline (for ano-rectal chlamydia) are both an example of successful chlamydia treatments you can buy online.

"One of the most common STIs in the UK, largely because many people don’t know they have it, is chlamydia. It can lead to complications, which is why timely treatment is recommended."

Finding treatment

Chlamydia can easily be treated with antibiotics. To treat penile/vaginal chlamydia, Azithromycin is prescribed as a five day treatment, which is taken as a single 500mg dose on day one, followed by 250mg to be taken once daily during the next four days. For ano-rectal chlamydia, two 100mg Doxycycline tablets can be taken every day for one week. Both treatments will be required if you are experiencing both types of chlamydia. Always take the full course of antibiotics, even if your symptoms of chlamydia disappear before you finish the course
