Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases and one which can have serious complications if untreated for a long time. One of the problems of chlamydia is that it can remain in the body for many months or even years without symptoms, making its diagnosis and treatment difficult. In this article, we will discuss one of the most important symptoms of chlamydia, its discharge.
Sexually transmitted diseases:
Infections spread in various ways. Some spread through the respiratory tract like cold and flu viruses, others through food and infect the gastrointestinal system like food poisoning and hepatitis A virus. Sexually transmitted infections spread through sexual contact whether oral, vaginal, or anal. Sexually transmitted diseases usually affect the genital tract itself, but they can also infect other parts of the body whether in direct contact with genitals like the mouth and throat, or even far away in the body through blood.
Sexually transmitted diseases can be bacterial like chlamydia and gonorrhea, viral like hepatitis B, C, and HIV, or even fungal like candida.
