Chlamydia is one of the most common causes of sexually transmitted diseases in humans. Sexually transmitted diseases have long been considered a taboo, and the knowledge regarding them including protection of oneself from them has been, therefore, obscured and neglected. Thanks to modern medicine and public health advancements, however, it is now relatively easy to diagnose most sexually transmitted diseases, and their treatment has become more available.
What are sexually transmitted diseases?
Sexually transmitted diseases are infections that are transmitted through sexual contact. An infection is when another organism including bacteria, viruses, protozoa, fungi, or even parasites invade a certain part of your body and begins to multiply and use the available resources to grow. In the case of sexually transmitted diseases, they can include bacteria like gonorrhea and chlamydia, viruses like herpes, hepatitis, and HIV, and fungi like chlamydia. Such transmission can be through vaginal, oral, or anal sexual contact.
