Chlamydia Transmission- Indianapolis

Chlamydia is known as the “silent epidemic”. It is called a Silent Epidemic because 75% of the women and 50% of the men with the disease have no symptoms. Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted infection amongst young people. It’s dangerous because often it has no symptoms. Chlamydia can cause discharge from the penis.

Chlamydia is less likely to be transmitted during oral sex because the bacteria that cause chlamydia prefer to target the genital area rather than the throat. This is why it is unlikely for chlamydia to be transmitted from mouth-to-penis and penis-to-mouth contact, although it is still possible. Chlamydia is a bacterial infection disease transmitted when people have sexual relations. It is the most common sexually transmitted disease (STD) in the United States. Chlamydiae are thought to be descendants of bacteria that have lost certain metabolic processes. In humans, a strain of chlamydia causes trachoma , a disease found mainly in the tropics (a leading cause of blindness); venereally transmitted chlamydiae cause genital and urinary infections.

Chlamydia also can be passed from a mother to her baby while the baby is being delivered. This can cause pneumonia and conjuntivitis, which can become very serious for the baby if it’s not treated. Chlamydial infection of the cervix can spread to the rectum. Chlamydia screening and reporting are expected to continue to expand.

Chlamydial infections are believed to be the most common of all notifiable STDs. It is generally thought that in a population of 15 million, there are up to 300,000 cases of chlamydia each year. Chlamydia can be easily treated with antibiotics. Because chlamydia and gonorrhea often occur together, people with chlamydia may be treated for both diseases at the same time. Chlamydia bacteria can infect the cervix, rectum or the urethra. Sometimes, it can also infect the throat after performing oral sex.

Chlamydia infections may also be associated with miscarriage, stillbirth, or low infant birthweight. Chlamydia in women can infect the cervix and urinary tract and can cause pelvic inflammatory disease when it reaches the fallopian tubes. In men chlamydia can infect the urinary tract and the epididymis causing swelling or inflammation of the testicles. If left untreated, chlamydia can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) in women, which can lead to chronic pain and infertility.

Chlamydia and other bacterial STDs are curable with proper diagnosis and treatment. There are 2,800,000 new cases each year with some individuals accounting for multiple cases.
