Chlamydia / Female Bacterial STD

Background: Chlamydia is a highly infectious and curable sexually transmitted disease caused by the Trachomatis bacteria. As many as 3 million females currently have it and are totally unawaret. Approximately 75% of women, and 50% of men, donít know they are infected until a doctor tells them they are. As many as half of all young females, between the ages of 16-25, have tested positive for Chlamydia.

A culture test is conducted to rule out other sexually transmitted diseases. Most people are asymptomatic, which means they can be symptom free. Any person who engages in unprotected sex should be tested for Chlamydia because, if left untreated, can lead to very serious complications in both men and women. The human body does not develop any immunity or resistance toward this sexually transmitted disease. This means that re-infection can reoccur if the person is exposed again.

Primary Mode of Chlamydia Transmission:

Having vaginal, anal, or oral sex without a condom. A non-lubricated condom should also be used for oral sex for men and a dental dam, or cut-up condom laid flat for female oral sex.

If the unprotected vagina, cervix, anus, penis, or mouth come in contact with the highly virulent, infected secretions, or fluids, then transmission will most likely occur.

Eye infections may result when body fluids carry the bacteria into the eye during sex, or hand-to-eye contact.

Chlamydia Symptoms:

A person is usually infected immediately upon exposure. Most people do not know they are infected and if any symptoms do occur, they usually surface within three weeks of exposure to the bacteria. A person is considered infected from the time they become infected until their treatment is completed. Only a qualified doctor can determine if a person is free of Chlamydia. Although a culture is the preferred way to determine infection, several tests are available.

Initial Chlamydia Symptoms If They Occur:

  • Soreness, or redness in the mouth or throat.

  • Inflamed, painful rectum (Proctitis).

  • Painful or burning urination, (Urethritis).

  • Swollen and inflamed eyelids Waking up with ďcrustedĒ eyes. (Conjunctivitis).

  • Vaginal discharge.

Advanced Chlamydia Symptoms:

  • Painful bleeding between menstrual periods.

  • Unexplained nausea, sensitivity to smells, especially strong food odors.

  • Fever, and possibly night sweats. Dragging fatigue.

  • Lower abdominal and lower back pain as the infections spreads to the fallopian tubes.

  • Pain during intercourse.

What Can Happen If Chlamydia Is Not Treated:

Infertility: The inability to conceive a child may occur because Chlamydia can turn into Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) which a serious, potentially life threatening infection of a womanís reproductive organs. Due to the serious nature of PID, a high percentage of women have to be hospitalized to save their lives. PID can leave scars and blockages of the fallopian tubes, which are necessary for natural conception.

Kidney and Bladder Diseases: Untreated Chlamydia can lead to bladder infection (Cystitis) and then on to kidney infection/failure. Kidney failure can be fatal. Additionally, the urethra, the tube that empties the bladder, may become scarred leaving the woman with the constant problems of a highly susceptible to infection bladder, urinary urgency/leakage, and an unexplained pressure near the lower abdomen where the bladder is located.

Gynecological: Untreated Chlamydia can cause Mucopurulent cervicitis is a painful inflammation of the cervix that makes intercourse excruciatingly painful. A doctor notices a thick, yellow discharge (pus laden) being emitted from the cervix. (The cervix is inside of a woman and guards the opening of the uterus, or womb.) Sometimes a woman notices this distinct type of discharge on the bed sheets, or in the bathroom.
  • Sometimes the discharge is blood tinged. It is obvious something is very wrong. Fever can accompany this painful condition.

Reiterís Syndrome:

The bacterium that causes Chlamydia can also cause Reiterís Syndrome.

What is unusual about the Chlamydia and Reiterís Syndrome connection is that the symptoms of Reiterís do not appear to be the result of a sexually transmitted disease. 

Reiterís Syndrome Symptoms:

  • Nagging urinary tract problems. Bladder seems hypersensitive.

  • Irritated red eyes that donít seem to clear up no matter how much eye drops or eyewash is used. Changing contact lenses or eyeglasses doesnít help either.

  • Painful inflammation of joints, (arthritis), sometimes accompanying muscle aches and constant general body weakness. This form of arthritis can occur twenty years after contacting Chlamydia.
Only a licensed doctor can correctly diagnose Reiterís Syndrome.

What are you waiting for? Make an appointment to get checked out for Chlamydia.

How Chlamydia Is Treated:

There are several different types of antibiotics that are generally prescribed. It is very important to see a doctor for the correct diagnosis of Chlamydia, because gonorrhea, another bacterial infection, can accompany Chlamydia. Do not try to self-treat yourself, or withhold from your doctor the fact that you have had unprotected sex, or that your partner may have had unprotected sex. Getting it out in the open may save you from more serious complications and teach you a very valuable lesson in protecting yourself in the future.

Ignoring it will not make it go away. Your doctor WILL understand and only wants to see you well. Remember, what you tell your doctor is confidential under law. If you are short on funds, virtually every place in the United States has some kind of free clinic. Get out the yellow pages. Stop making excuses not to go and get checked out! Chlamydia is nothing to fool around with!

How to Prevent Being Infected by Chlamydia:

In Order of Importance:
  1. Abstain from all sexual activity with another person outside of a mutually monogamous relationship.

  2. Wear a condom for intercourse, and a flattened cut up condom, or dental dam for oral sex and an non-lubricated condom for male oral sex.

  3. Agree to MUTUAL monogamy after both of you are tested negative for every known STD. Monogamy is having sex with only one partner.
Chlamydia is a nasty, 100% preventable sexually transmitted disease. There is no reason on earth to contact it and most certainly not to treat it and get rid of it!

And one more special note: It has recently been discovered that SARS (Sudden Acute Respiratory Syndrome) is caused by a nasty, potentially life threatening carnovirus, which is a strain of mutated Chlamydia.
