Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease which affects both men and women. It is a bacterial infection caused by the Chlamydia trachomatis bacteria. It usually affects teenagers and young adults. In the initial stages this disease goes undetected as it hardly manifests any symptoms.
Sometimes the symptoms do not appear for a long period of time and the affected person being unaware of the infection passes on the disease to his/her partner during intercourse. Generally the urethra in the males and the cervix in the females get infected. Men usually experience pain during urination.
The penis becomes tender and painful and there is a creamy or yellowish discharge from it. Women have vaginal discharge, pain in the lower abdomen, pain during intercourse and burning sensation during urination. The dire consequence of this disease can be infertility.
