Failure to test and get treatment for Chlamydia can put anyone's life in danger. There are many problems and complications that can arise due to undiagnosed and untreated Chlamydia, so everyone is warned to be vigilant and proactive when it comes to their health.

 


Anyway, here are the most common Chlamydia complications among men and women:


Men


- Epididymitis


This causes the testicles or scrotum to swell. It can lead to a fluid build-up and cause tenderness and pain. If not treated, it can result to infertility.


- Urethritis 


This is the inflammation or swelling of the urethra. Its symptoms include more frequent urinating, pain when urinating, soreness or irritation around the penis tip, and white/cloudy discharge coming from the penis.


Women


- Pelvic Inflammatory Disease


This is also known as PID, and it is the infection of the ovaries, uterus, and fallopain tubes. It can lead to miscarriage, infertility, chronic pelvic pains, and ectopic pregnancy.


- Cervicitis


This is the inflammation of the cervix. Its symptoms are bleeding between menstrual periods, pain when having sex, bleeding during or after intercourse, and lower abdominal pains.
