Hello, I am Dr. Rachel Gorwitz, Medical Officer in the Division of STD Prevention at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Although most Chlamydia cases reported are among teens and young adults, any sexually active person can get this sexually transmitted disease or STD.
In fact, CDC estimates there are nearly 3 million new cases of Chlamydia each year. People get Chlamydia by having vaginal, anal, or oral sex with someone who has this STD. Most people with Chlamydia have no symptoms which is why the infection often goes undiagnosed. If symptoms occur, they may not appear until weeks after having sex with someone who is infected.
Women with Chlamydia may have an abnormal vaginal discharge or burning sensation when urinating. Men with Chlamydia may have a discharge from the penis
or a burning sensation when urinating. Even when a chlamydial infection does not cause symptoms, if left untreated it can go on to cause pelvic inflammatory disease, chronic pelvic pain or make it difficult or impossible for a woman to get pregnant.
CDC recommends that sexually active women under age 26 be tested for Chlamydia every year. It is important for both men and women to discuss their sexual history with their physician to determine if they should be tested for Chlamydia. Chlamydia can be cured easily with antibiotics prescribed by a healthcare provider. Even after treatment though a person can be reinfected if they have sex with someone who has Chlamydia.So it’s important that sex partners are also treated.
