Symptoms of Chlamydia

Sometimes, the chlamydia is asymptomatic and it becomes very difficult to find out how long one remain infectious but if chlamydia symptoms appear, they usually emerge within one to three weeks after infected. When the chlamydia symptoms do appear in women, they may be mild and passing, making them easy to overlook. Moreover, the bacteria primarily infect the cervix and the urethra. The symptoms includes yellowish vaginal discharge; smelly vaginal discharge; painful or frequent urination; a burning sensation during urination. But when the infection passes from the cervix to the fallopian tubes, one experiences lower abdominal and lower back pain, pain during intercourse, nausea, fever, or bleeding between menstrual periods.
 
However, during pregnancy, the infant may also acquire the disease leading the baby to have eye disease or pneumonia.
