What is chlamydia?

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection in the genital tract. This spreads through vaginal, oral or anal sex. Usually transmitted from seminal or vaginal fluid of the infected person. It can also spread through genital contact even when penetrative sex has not taken place.


The symptoms for chlamydia only show up after 1-3 weeks of being infected. Sometimes the symptoms are mild and asymptomatic. People can also get chlamydia in other parts of the body like the anus, throat or even the eyes.


Chlamydia infections are treatable and curable and it is important to get the treatment as soon as possible
