What is Chlamydia
Chlamydia is an infection that is transmitted through unprotected sexual intercourse. It is mainly found in the mucous membranes of the genitals and the vagina. Direct contact leads to infection. This is especially dangerous in women, as symptoms are not discovered in many cases. If you suffer from chlamydia, you can order two effective chlamydia treatments on our platform, namely the antibiotics Azithromycin and Doxycycline. We connect you to EU-licensed doctors who will issue a prescription. After that, a registered mail-order pharmacy will send the treatment, anonymously and quickly, directly to your home.
The causes of Chlamydia
Chlamydia infection is caused by the Chlamydia bacteria, which multiply in the human body cells and cause the disease. The risk of infection is particularly high in people who frequently change sexual partners.
Types of Chlamydia
The Chlamydia bacteria, also called Chlamydia Trachomatis, multiply in human body cells and form chlamydia subgroups, such as Chlamydia Pneumoniae and Chlamydia Psittaci.
How is Chlamydia transmitted
Chlamydia can be transmitted in different ways. For instance, the infection, in the subtypes of Chlamydia Trachomatis, is passed on through sexual contact. However, in other subtypes, the transmission may be done by infectious ocular secretions. The infection can also be passed on, for example, by contaminated hands or infected towels.
Chlamydophila pneumoniae is transmitted via droplet infection. Through saliva, coughing or sneezing, the bacterium can enter the body. Finally, originally from birds, Chlamydophila Psittaci spreads to humans, but it cannot be transmitted further to other people. The transmission to humans takes place by direct contact with the infected animals.
The consequences of an untreated Chlamydia infection
Chlamydia Pneumoniae can cause inflammation of the bronchi and paranasal sinuses, as well as pneumonia. Also, Chlamydia Psittaci causes severe pneumonia. In men, an untreated Chlamydia infection may result in inflammation of the testicles and infertility. If the infection stays untreated in women, inflammation of the uterine lining, fallopian tubes and ovaries may cause scarring and obstruction of the fallopian tubes, which can lead to a high risk of ectopic pregnancy and infertility. It is estimated that around 100,000 women in the United Kingdom are infertile because of Chlamydia. In addition, an eye inflammation from these bacteria can ultimately lead to blindness.
Chlamydia infection – Common symptoms
The first symptoms manifest themselves one or three weeks after you’ve got the infection. They start with itching, a purulent discharge, pain and burning in the genital area while urinating. Moreover, these symptoms are usually associated with fever, diarrhea and severe abdominal pain. However, in many cases, there are no symptoms at all. These are generally the cases when the infection is not recognized or treated. In men, the prostate, urethra, and epididymis often become inflamed. A strong urge to urinate, as well as urethral pulling pains, are the main signs.
How is Chlamydia diagnosed?
You can opt for a Chlamydia test in the form of urine analysis, which can be done either at the doctor‘s or at home. Please note that this test is used to identify the most common bacterium, Chlamydia Trachomatis. If you experience any of the above symptoms, we advise you to seek medical assistance. As stated before, an untreated case of chlamydia can lead to more serious health issues.
How to treat Chlamydia
The best way to treat this health condition is with antibiotics. In this case, antibiotics are very effective and generally heal about 95% of all infections. At Apomeds we offer the following antibiotics:
As with all medications, these antibiotics have side effects. However, not all patients experience. The most common side effects are:
- Tummy pain
- Vaginal thrush
- Feeling sick
You can buy the two antibiotics only via prescription. On our platform, you can have a prescription issued via online diagnosis by our EU-licensed doctors. After that, your order will be processed by the mail-order pharmacy we collaborate with and you will receive the drug within 24 to 48 hours.
How is Chlamydia cured?
In most cases, an antibiotic is administered, which prevents these types of bacteria from growing, while also combating them. The usual chlamydia antibiotics are either azithromycin or doxycycline. These drugs work fast and eliminate bacteria. However, in order to see the desired results, make sure to take them regularly, as prescribed by your doctor.
