Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease and any sexually active person can get infected with Chlamydia during vaginal, anal or oral sex. People with Chlamydia, who do not have any symptoms, may unknowingly spread Chlamydia among their partners. Chlamydia infection can be transmitted from an infected mother to her baby during childbirth. In babies, Chlamydia can cause pneumonia or conjunctivitis.
Prognosis and complications of Chlamydia:
Teenage girls and young women are at a higher risk of infection with Chlamydia than others. The opening to the uterus at this age is more susceptible to infection.
Antibiotics are the mainstay of treatment of Chlamydia infection. With appropriate treatment, Chlamydial infections can be cured 95% of the time.
