The causes of Chlamydia
A chlamydia infection is caused by the Chlamydia bacteria, which multiply in the human body cells and cause 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
The causes of Chlamydia infection can be transmitted in different ways. Chlamydia infection, in the subtypes of Chlamydia Trachomatis, is passed on through sexual contact. In other subtypes, transmission may be 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. 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 infected animals.
Consequence of a Chlamydia infection
Chlamydia Pneumoniae can cause inflammation of the bronchi and paranasal sinuses, as well as pneumonia. Chlamydia Psittaci causes severe pneumonia. In men, an untreated Chlamydia infection may result in inflammation of the testicles and infertility. If Chlamydia 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 cause a high risk of ectopic pregnancy and infertility. It is estimated that around 100,000 women in the UK are infertile because of a Chlamydia infection. In addition, an eye inflammation from this bacteria can lead to blindness.
Symptoms of a Chlamydia infection
The first symptoms manifest themselves one-three weeks after infection and start with itching, a purulent discharge, pain and burning in the genital area while urinating. Sometimes however, there may be no symptoms. Then the infection is not recognize 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 signs. In women, purulent inflammation of the uterine lining, fallopian tubes and ovaries may be the result. These symptoms are usually associated with fever, diarrhoea and severe abdominal pain.
How to diagnose Chlamydia?
There is a Chlamydia test in the form of urine analysis, which can be done either at the doctor‘s or at home. This test is for the most common bacterium, Chlamydia Trachomatis.
The treatment of Chlamydia?
The treatment of chlamydia is with antibiotics. In this case, antibiotics are very effective, and in general heal about 95% of all infections.
At Apomeds we offer the following antibiotics:
Both antibiotics have to be prescribed. On Apomeds you can have a prescription issued via online diagnosis by EU doctors. This will then be processed by the mail order pharmacy, and you will receive the drug within 48 hours.
How is Chlamydia cured?
As a rule, an antibiotic is administered, which prevents these types of bacteria from growing, and combats them. The usual chlamydia antibiotics are either azithromycin or doxycycline. These drugs work fast and eliminate the bacteria. Make sure, however, to take them regularly.
