Leaving chlamydia untreated would bring bigger trouble

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis. When transmitted through sexual contact, the bacteria can infect the urinary and reproductive organs. If you leave your chlamydia untreated, it would lead to a lot of health problems. For female patients, they would acquire some diseases of reproductive organs and some other complications which would induce infertility or even death. But for men, they would not likely to suffer severe complication. They would develop inflammation in the reproductive organs and very a few of them would become infertile.

 
Chlamydia is a quite common disease which can transmitted by sex. It can be found in people in all ages. But young women are the most susceptible. At the early stage, persons with chlamydia would have the symptoms such as painful urination and sex, itching and abnormal discharge. For most of the time, the patients would have no symptoms at all. So that it is easy for us to ignore it and leave it untreated. But leaving chlamydia untreated would lead to further damage, such as PID(pelvic inflammatory disease). PID is a serious infection of uterus and oviduct. It can damage the reproductive organs of women and lead to infertility. Even though a woman with chlamydia have been pregnant, she would have a higher risk of having ectopic pregnancy, giving birth prematurely, or passing the diseases on to their babies. And the infected babies might suffer from pneumonia, blindness and some other health issues. For men, untreated chlamydia may induce infections of epididymis. Epididymis is the tissue located next to testis. The untreated chlamydia also can induce prostatitis. These inflammations are always painful and likely to induce infertility.
 
In addition, untreated chlamydia would also affect some other parts except for the genital organs. It can induce arthritis, skin lesions and some other diseases of eyes and urethra. Urethra is a tube through which urine and semen flow out of our body.
 
Since untreated chlamydia can cause so many diseases, we should diagnose it and treat it as soon as possible. Diagnosing chlamydia is not easy because the symptoms may not that evident. If you are sexually active or having sex with more than one partner, you should periodically go to hospital to have an examination. You'd better have protected sex  such as wearing a condom. If you or your partner have acquired chlamydia, both of you should be treated. You can take traditional Chinese medicine-diuretic and anti-inflammatory pill to treat it. This medicine has a good effect on clearing away heat and toxic materials. To treat chlamydia in women, Fuyan pill is recommended, which is more suitable for women's health.
