Chlamydia is a bacterial infection that can be transmitted via oral, anal, and vaginal sex, and even through skin to skin contact. Chlamydia is quite common, and women often don’t realize they have it because symptoms don’t always occur. If you’re sexually active, consider talking to a gynecologist about STD testing.
Watch the accompanying video to learn the signs of chlamydia. This doctor explains the symptoms in both men and women. For women, the red flags include abnormal vaginal discharge, pelvic pain, pain during sex, and bleeding between periods. For this particular STD, the treatment is a course of antibiotics.
