Chlamydia and gonorrhea are two very common bacterial sexually transmitted infections (STIs). If left untreated, these infections can cause more serious, long-term health problems. That’s why it’s important for people who are sexually active to get tested for STIs.
The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends that people under the age of 25, and those with new or multiple sex partners, get tested at least once a year. Even people in long-term relationships should get tested at least once.
If you are diagnosed, there are antibiotics that can help treat chlamydia and gonorrhea. Getting tested early can help you avoid more serious health problems in the future, so be sure to get tested regularly if you’re sexually active.
Why should I get tested?
Chlamydia and gonorrhea are common STDs, particularly in individuals aged between 15 and 24 years, but many infected individuals remain asymptomatic. Many people infected with chlamydia or gonorrhea do not show any symptoms, yet they can still transmit the bacteria to others and serious health complications are also possible. Testing is quick, painless, and easy, and infections (whether they are causing symptoms or not) can be easily cured with prescribed antibiotics.
What are the symptoms of chlamydia?
Most individuals infected with chlamydia remain asymptomatic, with only an estimated 10% of infected males showing symptoms and 5-30% of infected females. C. trachomatis initially infects the cervix of females and sometimes the urethra. In symptomatic females, this can result in abnormal vaginal discharge, endocervical bleeding, increased urinary frequency, and dysuria.
Symptomatic males generally develop urethritis resulting in urethral discharge, dysuria, and testicular pain. Chlamydia infections of the rectum may lead to rectal pain, discharge and/or bleeding. Sexually acquired chlamydial conjunctivitis can also occur in both males and females.
Chlamydia is a very common sexually transmitted infection (STI) in the United States, with about four million cases each year. It is caused by a bacteria called Chlamydia trachomatis, which can infect the genital tract of both men and women. If left untreated, chlamydia can lead to permanent damage to a woman’s reproductive systems. Chlamydia is usually spread through sexual contact, so it’s important to practice safe sex and use protection, such as condoms. Symptoms of chlamydia can range from mild to severe, but many people don’t experience any symptoms at all. That’s why it’s so important to get tested and treated if you think you may have been exposed.
Gonorrhea is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the bacteria Neisseria gonorrhoeae. It can infect both men and women and is especially common in young people ages 15-24 years. Every year in the United States, about 700,000 people get infected with gonorrhea. People who have gonorrhea may not have any symptoms, but if they do, they may have abnormal discharge from the vagina or penis and pain when they pee. If gonorrhea is not treated with antibiotics, it can cause serious problems. Even if a person doesn’t have any symptoms, they can still spread the infection to someone else.
Can I get chlamydia or gonorrhea again?
Yes. Although antibiotic treatment is effective for chlamydia and gonorrhea infections, it does not prevent future infections through exposure to an infected individual. Testing and treatment again in the future may be required.
