Chlamydia is a sexually-transmitted disease that is caused by bacteria that can be transmitted from one individual to another through sexual contact. It can infect males, females, teenagers, and adults if they fail to observe the appropriate precaution when having sex.
The following are some of the most common Chlamydia complications that you can be at risk of if you do not get tested and diagnosed for Chlamydia early on.
PID or the Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (females)
This strikes the female's fallopian tubes and uterus. It can also harm the cervix and ovaries. It can cause fever and persistent pelvic pains. Women who suffer from it usually end up being hospitalized and administered intravenous antibiotics.
Prostate infection (males)
The Chlamydia bacteria can reach a male's prostate gland if not treated right away. This can result to lower back pains, painful urination, chills, and fever.
Untreated Chlamydia can cause serious harm and damage to a woman's fallopian tubes, which can end up to infertility.
Having Chlamydia puts anyone at greater risk of contracting other types of STDs.
