Chlamydia & Gonorrhoea
Chlamydia is a bacterial infection that can only be passed on through sexual contact with an infected individual. It rarely causes symptoms, but can be passed on months and sometimes years after the person was initially infected, which further aides its spread. Despite its prevalence and contagious nature chlamydia is not considered a serious condition and can be treated early with a special course of antibiotics. However, if the condition is left untreated it can cause a range of complications including infertility or pelvic inflammatory disease. For this reason it’s important to get tested regularly. If you’ve had unprotected sex with someone who has chlamydia then the chances are that you have it too. If you have it then you’ll pass it on to any future sexual partners that you have.
Gonorrhoea is a sexually transmitted infection that is caused by the Neisseria gonorrhoeae bacteria, also known as gonococcus.
The condition is especially prevalent in both men and women aged between 15 and 24 years old and if you’ve had sex with someone who is infected then you could be at risk. Symptoms of the disease include vaginal or penile discharge although the only way to know that you have the condition is by getting tested.
Gonorrhoea is treated with antibiotics, however if left untreated it can cause complications to pregnancy as well as a range of other long term health issues, including pelvic inflammatory disease and possible infertility.
