Chlamydia is an STI caused by the bacteria chlamydia trachomatis. Symptoms of chlamydia generally include pain or a burning sensation when urinating, although in many cases chlamydia shows no symptoms at all. In fact, around 50% of men and 70-80% of women do not experience any symptoms, meaning it can go often unnoticed and be spread by accident. Left untreated, it can cause serious health issues including infertility.
Chlamydia is contracted by having unprotected sex and can be passed through vaginal, anal or oral sex. Skin-on-skin genital contact can also transfer the infection, even if there is no penetration, as it can be passed through sexual fluids. The use of unclean sex toys can also transfer chlamydia.
