Pain in your genitals? – Genital Chlamydia Symptoms Checker

 

Chlamydia is a bacteria that can infect and produce diseases in many parts of the body. However, this tool will focus on identifying the infection that affects genitals.

Chlamydia is a bacterial infection people acquire through sexual contact. And it is pretty widespread among the population. If we take into account only bacterial infections that people get through sexual intercourse; this one is the most common of all of them. Therefore, it is part of the group of sexually transmitted diseases.

Specifically, Chlamydia trachomatis is the subtype of this bacteria that can infect human genitals, although other sites also like the lungs or eyes. In the genitals, it causes two types of diseases; genital tract infections and lymphogranuloma venereum. However, the latter mostly occurs in tropical countries.

This infection is not exempt from complications. In fact, it is a leading cause of infertility among women in the United States (US). Hence, in the US right now, it is a formal indication to screen for this infection in females that are sexually active and under twenty-four years old and females that are part of the high-risk groups of patients.

Among the other consequences that not treating this infection could prompt, there is chronic pain in the genital area, severe infection and swelling in the female upper reproductive organs, and ectopic pregnancies (which could be a life-threatening condition). Yet, infertility and these other complications tend to occur if patients do not receive the early and correct treatment. So, if caught early, the probabilities for the patient to develop these complications substantially reduces.

This tool gathers the most important signs, symptoms, and risk factors for this infection.

The importance of preventing the complications this infection could cause to so many females just by using antibiotics is necessary. And that is what this tool is all about, the prevention.

This tool gathers the most important risk factors and symptoms for chlamydia. Therefore, it will aim to identify for anyone who uses it the likelihood of their symptoms being because of this infection. This tool could also be positive if somebody has several risk factors for it, despite not having symptoms.

Keep in mind that for diagnosing this infection, a doctor must run some tests. Also, more than half of the patients will carry this infection without showing any symptoms. So, this tool does not represent a diagnosis or whatsoever. It truly represents an estimation of someone carrying this infection based on symptoms and risk factors in a question format.

Stay safe and avoid complications by using this tool. The best about it is that it is free and would only take a few minutes.
