Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that is caused by a bacterium called Chlamydia trachomatis. An estimated 2.8 Americans are infected each year and as a result, it is one the most common STDs reported in New York and around the United States. Approximately 75% of women and 50% of men show no symptoms, which is why most people are not aware they have the infection
It can be passed from one person to another through unprotected vaginal, anal, or oral sex with an infected person. It can also be passed from an infected mother to her baby during vaginal childbirth.
The disease can affect both men and women of all ages, but it is most common among people under the age of 25. Since the STD can be transmitted by oral or anal sex, men who have sex with men are also at risk for infection.
Chlamydia is often referred to as "the silent epidemic" because infections are very common, yet the majority of people don't even realize they are infected. If symptoms occur, they usually appear within 1-3 weeks after exposure.
Symptoms in women can appear as abnormal vaginal discharge (white or yellowish), painful or burning urination, and bleeding between periods.
Symptoms in men can be a discharge from the penis, painful urination, burning and itching around the penis, and pain and swelling in the testicles.
Chlamydia testing recommended once a year to any: sexually active person who is 25 years or younger, have a new sex partner, experiencing symptoms, or if you frequently engage in unprotected sex.
In the case of having multiple sex partners, then testing is advised several times a year, as the risk of getting Chlamydia is increased. Pregnant women should get tested during their first prenatal exam.
We use the urine exam as the standard testing method because it is the most accurate exam and it is widely used for detecting this sexually transmitted disease. We will send your urine sample to our certified laboratory for analysis and you can expect your test result back in 3-5 business days. The exam is sensitive, so it's very unlikely to have a false-positive result.
Generally it takes 3 days to get the result.
Chlamydia is curable and easily treatable. If the test results come back positive, our doctor will prescribeyou a medication that should resolve the condition. In addition the partner should be notified and treated at the same time.
Two main treatment options: a single dose of Azithromycin (1 gm) or a week of Doxycycline (100 mg twice daily).
