Chlamydia
  • Overview of Chlamydia
    • Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted disease that can affect both men and women and is caused by an infection with Chlamydia trachomatis. Though those with chlamydia may be asymptomatic, some individuals may experience symptoms associated with cervicitis such as endocervical bleeding. However, without proper treatment, the infection can spread to the fallopian tubes or cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) (link PID). To prevent chlamydia, use condoms consistently and correctly. If you are experiencing symptoms, contact your physician or make an appointment at the Student Health Services here.
