8 Chlamydia Symptoms in Men

6. Rectal pain, discharge and bleeding

Rectal inflammation occurs due to the spread of chlamydia infection to the adjacent areas. Men can also experience severe pain which is not related to defecation and, in some cases, may have a milky discharge or even bleeding.

7. Conjunctivitis

In men, it may be common to have chlamydia spread beyond the genitourinary system. The eyes are one of the most commonly damaged organs.

Conjunctivitis is the inflammation of the conjunctiva or the mucous membrane covering the front of the ocular globe. So, the eyes become red with itching and, in some cases, serous or purulent discharge.
