nice to meet you here in HCMagic
Chlamydia is a disease caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis. It is most commonly sexually transmitted.
The diagnosis of chlamydia infection
involves sampling of the urethral discharge in males or cervical secretions in females. If an individual engages in anal sexual contact, samples from the rectum may also be needed. The sample is sent for a fluorescent or monoclonal antibody test, DNA probe test, or cell culture. Some of these tests may also be performed on urine samples.
The usual treatment for chlamydia is antibiotics, including tetracyclines, azithromycin
, or erythromycin
You can get chlamydia with gonorrhea
or syphilis, so if you have one sexually transmitted disease
you must be screened for other sexually transmitted diseases as well. All sexual contacts should be screened for chlamydia.
Sexual partners must be treated to prevent passing the infection back and forth. There is no significant immunity following the infection and a person may become repeatedly infected.
A follow-up evaluation may be done in 4 weeks to determine if the infection has been cured.
hope i helped with your query,
