Chlamydia Symptoms

Whilst most common in the under 25s, any sexually active person can catch chlamydia. Multiple sexual partners greatly increase the likelihood of getting an STI.

Symptoms of Chlamydia in men:

  • Discharge from the penis
  • Pain when urinating
  • Discomfort and swelling of the testicles

Symptoms of Chlamydia in women:

  • Discharge from the vagina
  • Pain and/or bleeding during/after sex
  • Pain when urinating
  • Bleeding between periods

How long does it take for symptoms of Chlamydia to appear?

Chlamydia has been nicknamed ‘the silent disease,’ as most people with it do not experience any symptoms at all – therefore are unaware they even have this infection. For those that do show symptoms, they appear 1-3 weeks after being exposed to the infection.

What happens if Chlamydia is left untreated?

If untreated, chlamydia can lead to the following problems:

In men:

  • Epididymitis – painful inflammation of the testicles, which may result in reduced fertility or sterility
  • Urethritis – inflammation of the urethra
  • Reiter’s syndrome – inflammation of the joints, urethra and eyes

In women:

  • Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Salpingitis – blocked fallopian tubes, which reduces fertility
  • Ectopic pregnancy
  • Cervicitis – inflammation of the uterine cervix
  • Long-term pelvic pain
  • Early miscarriage or premature birth

Can I be cured of Chlamydia?

Chlamydia can be easily treated and cured with antibiotics.
