Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection caused by Chlamydia trachomatis bacteria. It is spread through unprotected vaginal, oral, or anal sex.

With proper antibiotic treatment, chlamydia is curable. If left untreated, chlamydia can permanently damage the female reproductive system.

Many people infected with chlamydia have no symptoms or subtle symptoms. That’s why it’s important to get regular chlamydia screenings with a medical provider and a prescription to treat chlamydia if you receive a positive diagnosis.

Chlamydia infection is a sexually transmitted disease caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. People can get chlamydia by having unprotected vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who has the infection.

Some people experience symptoms, such as chlamydia discharge or a burning sensation when urinating. But not everyone has chlamydia symptoms, so it’s possible to spread chlamydia without knowing you have it.

Risk factors for chlamydia include having multiple sexual partners, not using condoms consistently or correctly, having a history of STIs, and age. Sexually active people under age 25 are at higher risk of chlamydia since they’re more likely to have more than one risk factor.

Chlamydia can usually be diagnosed with a urine sample. In some cases, the doctor may need a sample from the cervix, vagina, throat, or anus.

NOTE: Lab testing is NOT required prior to treatment with CallonDoc if you have been exposed to chlamydia or are experiencing symptoms. We offer both at-home test kits and in-person lab testing. After treatment we recommend follow-up testing to confirm the infection has cleared.

Chlamydia is treated with oral antibiotics, such as azithromycin, doxycycline, ciprofloxacin, levofloxacin, or clarithromycin. You may need a one-time dose or longer treatment (up to 7 days).

In most cases, the infection will clear up within 1-2 weeks of starting antibiotic treatment. But you can still spread the infection early on in treatment. To avoid spreading chlamydia to others, you should avoid sexual activity from when you start treatment until your symptoms are gone.

Your sexual partners for the past 60 days should also be screened or treated. Otherwise, the infection can be passed back and forth.

Being diagnosed with chlamydia once does not prevent you from getting it again. To avoid getting reinfected, you should consistently use safer sex practices (such as condoms).

Symptoms aren’t limited to the genital or pelvic region. You can get oral chlamydia and experience soreness or redness in the throat. Untreated infections can lead to infertility and reproductive

With the proper treatment, the infection can be cured, eliminating symptoms of chlamydia and the risk for long-term complications.
