Conceiving is not always easy, especially if the age advances and some diseases or their consequences are present. Chlamydia and getting pregnant are similar.
What is Chlamydia?
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted bacteria. In the second half of the 20th century so far, the number of patients has increased dramatically, statistics show.
What are the symptoms of chlamydia infection?
Unfortunately, 70% of infected women and 50% of men do not have any symptoms of infection. Consequently, a very small proportion of patients seek medical attention, which makes treatment difficult and facilitates the spread of the disease.
In 30% of women who experience any symptoms of the disease, they are similar to cystitis - burning when urinating and even pain, as well as increased vaginal discharge. Bleeding and spotting between monthly cycles may also occur. Discomfort and pain during intercourse may occur as a result of inflammation of the tissues in the area.
How does chlamydia affect fertility?
If left untreated, the infection can remain latent for months before reaching the uterus and fallopian tubes. This can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease and a number of complications. It is characterized by lower abdominal pain, fever, painful intercourse.
Ignoring these symptoms can lead to blocked fallopian tubes and subsequent infertility.
Chlamydia is one of the most widespread causes of infertility in recent years. In one year, approximately 30,000 women in the US become infertile because of the insidious infection.
What is the treatment?
It is important that chlamydia is treated by a specialist with the appropriate medication. It is also important to do this as early as possible. Therefore, regular preventive examinations are absolutely mandatory. Don't wait until you get any symptoms, but make sure to see your doctor regularly so it's not too late.
To diagnose chlamydia, cervical secretion is taken in women, and urethral in men. Once an accurate diagnosis is made, treatment is effective with appropriate antibiotics. Chlamydia is not resistant, so the cure becomes effective after a few weeks.
