Pictures of STDs : Picture of Chlamydia in Female Subject

In this picture of Chlamydia, a female suffers from chlaymidial cervictis that is causing inflammation and a white discharge similar to what infected men may observe (see picture titled: Pictures of STDs: Chlamydia pictures men). Women may experience a number of other symptoms such as nausea, fever, lower back pain, and pain during intercourse and urination. Chlamydia is known as the “Silent Epidemic” because nearly 75% of women never exhibit symptoms and, if left untreated, Chlamydia can have serious consequences in the long term. Chlamydia can spread causing permanent damage to the fallopian tubes and surrounding tissue. This could result in chronic pelvic pain, infertility, and may even be potentially fatal if the woman becomes pregnant. For these reasons, an annual screening is recommended for sexually active women so the disease can be identified and cured with antibiotics.

Note: The STD Chlamydia pictures shown here only exhibit limited visible symptoms. Symptoms of the disease are fairly rare, as only 30% of women and just 25% of men display them.

Pictures of STDs: Chlamydia Pictures Men

Only one quarter of men infected with Chlamydia show or experience any symptoms. As seen in some Chlamydia pictures, men exhibit a white, cloudy or watery discharge from the tip of the penis similar to the discharge from the vagina in women (see picture titled: Pictures of STDs: Picture of Chlamydia in Female Subject). Some men may experience a burning sensation during urination and have a burning and itching sensation around the opening of the penis. Men may also feel pain and swelling in the testicles, but this is rare. Although the symptoms are mild for men, they risk infecting or re-infecting their sex partners if not treated. Viewing STD Chlamydia pictures alone cannot accurately diagnose the disease and sexually active men should take an STD test annually.

Pictures of STDs : Picture of Chlamydia

Chlamydia is the most common bacterial sexually transmitted disease in the United States. Over a million people are reported to have contracted the disease ever year; however, these reports do not provide an accurate picture of Chlamydia in the U.S. since most people with Chlamydia are not aware of their infections. Men especially do not show many visible symptoms (see picture titled: Pictures of STDs: Chlamydia Pictures Men) or feel pain or online casinos discomfort. Since Chlamydia is completely curable with antibiotics, the number of infections can easily be reduced if sexually active men and women sought regular STD testing.

Note: The STD Chlamydia pictures shown here only exhibit limited visible symptoms. Symptoms of the disease are fairly rare, as only 30% of women and just 25% of men display them.
