Symptoms of chlamydia

What is Chlamydia? Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted disease (STD) caused by the bacterium, Chlamydia trachomatis, which can damage a woman's reproductive organs. Even though symptoms of chlamydia are usually mild or absent, serious complications that cause irreversible damage, including infertility, can occur "silently" before a woman ever recognizes a problem. Chlamydia also can cause discharge from the penis of an infected man. How common is chlamydia? Chlamydia is the most frequently reported bacterial sexually transmitted disease in the United States. In 2006, 1,030,911 chlamydial infections were reported to CDC from 50 states and the District of Columbia. Under-reporting is substantial because most people with chlamydia are not aware of their infections and do not seek testing. Also, testing is not often done if patients are treated for their symptoms. An estimated 2,291,000 non-institutionalized U.S. civilians ages 14-39 are infected with Chlamydia based on the U.S. National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey. Women are frequently re-infected if their sex partners are not treated. How do people get chlamydia? Chlamydia can be transmitted during vaginal, anal, or oral sex. Chlamydia can also be passed from an infected mother to her baby during vaginal childbirth. Any sexually active person can be infected with chlamydia. The greater the number of sex partners, the greater the risk of infection. Because the cervix (opening to the uterus) of teenage girls and young women is not fully matured and is probably more susceptible to infection, they are at particularly high risk for infection if sexually active. Since chlamydia can be transmitted by oral or anal sex, men who have sex with men are also at risk for chlamydial infection. What are the symptoms of chlamydia? Chlamydia is known as a "silent" disease because about three quarters of infected women and about half of infected men have no symptoms. If symptoms do occur, they usually appear within 1 to 3 weeks after exposur

HIV infection is a medical condition characterized by a progressive deficiency in the immune system of the human body, caused by the Human Immunodeficiency Virus. Currently there is no cure for this condition. However, anti-retroviral therapy has succeeded in reducing the virus count to a bare minimum, and has helped the immune system to improve. This therapy has multiple side-effects, and over time, the virus starts multiplying, while the immune system fails gradually. Some Ayurvedic physicians compare the symptoms of HIV/AIDS to those of "Kshaya" or "Oja-Kshaya" mentioned in Ayurveda. While Ayurvedic treatment may not show the initial dramatic improvement seen with modern drugs, this treatment still has a significant role to play in the long term management of HIV infection. Ayurvedic medicines reduce the virus count and improve the CD4/CD8 count, which are indicative of the modulated immune status of the body. Judicious use of Ayurvedic medicines may also increase the innate (basic) immunity of the body

I m Mark! Age: 31 5:8 150 lbs. As a boy used to suffer from itchy-blisters all over my feet and uncommon sore throat irritations. These symptoms went away as I was growing up..., till recently came back all over my body now that I m 31. Was just wondering... I was recently diagnosed with hives on certain parts of my body such as fingers, arms, belly, back of my body etc... My dermatologist did a bio-lab test to find out what it was. It came back to be hives. So I guess I have had hives all of my life... Moving on... Now: Can hives spread to head of penis (cause blisters on that area) and or cause strep-throat? Are those two even related to the hives problem or is it something else such an STD infection? Yes, I m sexually active and I m very concerned about it... Note: My physician run blood tests on me to check for any STD infection and or HIV. Results come back negative all the time; but those little red spots/blisters on the head of my penis come and go back from time to time and the strep-throat problem does the same even after taking antibiotics. (AMOXICILLIN 875MG) Plz. I need a second opinion or advice... I would really appreciate your help. Anybody... Thanks Mark.

I was diagnosed with a bacterial infection and now, a week after my tests, I received a call from my doctor stating that I also have ureaplasma. I was tested for stds, etc. about a week after I met my boyfriend and all tests were negative. Is it possible I could have gotten ureaplasma from that hot tub?
