What it is and how to stop it
What is Chlamydia?
Symptoms for males include burning pain when urinating, whitish discharge coming from your penis, or irritation or soreness around the urethra (opening of the penis).
For females, symptoms include burning or pain when urinating, an unusual vaginal discharge, pain in the lower belly, unusual bleeding or spotting from the vagina, or pain or bleeding after sex.
Even if you show no signs of the symptoms mentioned above, if you are sexually active get tested for STIs.
How to prevent Chlamydia?
Before having sex make sure your partner has been tested and is free from chlamydia, remember it doesn't always show symptoms.
If you find that you do have Chlamydia, it can be easily cued with antibiotics. It is important though that you contact anyone you have had sex with and advice they be tested too.
