Chlamydia trachomatis is a known bacterium in the field of sexually transmitted diseases. Both men and women are similarly vulnerable to this bacterium. Despite sexual contact and accomplice determination, chlamydial transmission is conceivable. The incubation period of this bacterium lasts about 1-3 weeks, and the period from the end of the incubation and the onset of the first symptoms can not be determined. The bad thing about this bacteria is that the symptoms can be manifested during pregnancy, whereby neither pregnant women nor infants are spared.
Chlamydia Detection Tests
There are several tests that can detect chlamydia:
- NAAT test
- DNA test
- ELISA test
- DFA test
- culture of chlamydia
Specialists suggest an intentional chlamydial test once every year, for each situation, in such a case that left untreated the results can lead to permanent deformation of the full organs, as well as permanent sterility.
Symptoms in men
- tingling while wetting
- inflamed and swollen testicles
- itching of the penis
Normal for chlamydia is that in 3 weeks (the time required for hatching) in half of men indications are not appeared. Because of this, it is possible for a man to have this bacterium, not being aware of it and continually transmitting it.
Symptoms in women
- tingling while wetting
- increased vaginal discharge
- lower back pain
- unusual pain during sexual intercourse
- the occurrence of blood between menstrual cycles
After 3 weeks of incubation, 70% of women do not experience symptoms. The odds that you have this bacterium is a lot more noteworthy than the odds of men, so the negative ramifications for your health and the health of your posterity are a lot more prominent.
Symptoms during pregnancy
- infection of the fruit and fruit water
- premature shooting of the waterman and presumed delivery
- uterine infection after delivery
- the opportunity for the baby to be born with conjunctivitis
The risk is great for both you and your baby, but there is still a cure. Regular tests during pregnancy and therapy can cure and prevent these problems.
Prevention is possible. Of course, you need to practice sexual intercourse with care, if you do not have a permanent partner or a well-built trust with your partner. Be cautious and beware of your health. Frequent partnering may lead to chlamydia.
Treatment is also possible and certain antibiotics are used, but keep in mind that chlamydia can be treated only after you have discovered it. Consistently test, so as to stay away from undesirable results. If you happen to discover that you have chlamydia, then you can successfully cure it with antibiotics that your gynecologist will prescribe after reviewing and testing.
