What is Chlamydia? Last night I felt very sorry for one my closest friend who suffer chlamydia. She's 6 month pregnant and just yesterday, she found out that she was infected with this loathsome disease. She never had or have multiple intercourse to any one but to her husband, so therefore she got it from her trusted husband. Disgusting isn't it?
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease or infection (std or sti). This kind of diseases commonly known as a silent kind since it don't show's visible symptoms. Most of the infected individual are not aware that they have this disease. This kind of sexual transmitted disease can be passed during oral sex, vaginal and anal sex. Accordingly chlamydia can be easily treated but if you let it left untreated it can cause severe reproductive problem specially to our fertility.
My friend got this disease not before pregnancy, why? because most cases chlamydia usually block or harm the cervix that leads to infertility. So therefore, she got chlamydia infection while she's pregnant. I just feel bad because, in most cases it will harm the infant. Am I furious? Yes i'm mad, agitated and almost go off and make a call to her husband. God forbid, hope the baby will come out fine.
Infant Symptoms and effects:
. Premature Delivery
. Neonatal Conjunctivitis
. Hard time in Breathing
. Respiratory infection
Chlamydia can be easily treated and cured, but can cause infertility or tubal pregnancy if not treated. Chlamydia can be cured by taking some antibiotic's, and to avoid long term problem early treatment is advise.
In women symptoms includes the following:
. Pain during sexual intercourse
. nausea or having a fever
. pain during peeing
. vaginal discharge like some yellow milky mucus with a foul smell
. abdominal pain
. spotting between periods.
I suggest, that we should have some check up to shun away from this kind of reproductive illness.Indeed, prevention is better than cure.
