In most adult women and 50% of men, chlamydia has no symptoms.
Most men develop symptoms after about 7 to 21 days of infection with Chlamydia.
Chlamydia’s symptoms are similar to gonorrhea, and gonorrhea and chlamydia infections are often confused with each other.
In men, urethral discharge, urethral itching, dysuria, testicular pain, and conjunctivitis may occur.
In recent years, the urine secretion or first urine is collected, and nucleic acid amplification test (PCR) can be performed to diagnose causative bacteria at the same time.
It can be treated mainly with oral medicines. If you have gonorrhea, treat the chlamydia with it because it is similar to the symptoms of gonorrhea and chlamydia.
All sex partners should be examined and treated and should not have sexual intercourse until the treatment is complete.
When performing a cure assessment test using the nucleic acid amplification test (PCR), the test should be performed three weeks after the end of treatment to avoid false positive results.
