Overview of Chlamydia



What is chlamydia? This is a sexually transmitted disease that may not show any signs or symptoms until you find out from a test. However, it can affect all people in any age group but shows up most in young women. It can be easily treated but can result in more serious health issues. If your infection is bad, you may notice pain or discharge from your penis or vagina.

What are the risk factors? Those under 24 are most at risk who have had many different sexual partners and do not use STD protection regularly. Prior STD infections are also a risk factor.
