Are there any symptoms?
  • In the penis, there may be pain, burning or tingling when urinating, whitish discharge, or soreness around the urethra (opening of the penis). Sometimes there no symptoms
  • In the vagina, there may be unusual discharge, pain when urinating, pain during sex, or bleeding between periods. Often there are no symptoms
  • If left untreated, vaginal chlamydia can lead to Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) which may make it harder to get pregnant
  • Symptoms in the anus can include bleeding, unusual discharge, or pain
  • If you have oral sex with someone who has the infection, you may get it in your throat. But it’s unlikely to cause any symptoms
  • Remember, there’s not always symptoms. STI testing every 6-12 months is the only way to stay healthy
