8 Symptoms of Chlamydia in Women

3. Cystitis

Discomfort or pain while urinating is another common symptom of this bacterial infection. Most women refer to a burning sensation while urinating, and also an increase in frequency.

Many diseases can be the cause of this symptom, so it is always important to consult a doctor. It is also important to know that, due to the proximity between the urethra and the vagina, the bacterial infection may spread by contiguity and produce a urinary infection which also needs to be treated to avoid severe complications.

4. Asymptomatic

Although it may sound contradictory, the most common symptom of chlamydia is not having any symptoms at all.

The person with this condition is medically called “asymptomatic carrier”, and the main problem of this condition is that neither the patient nor its sexual partner may notice the infection, so it is transmitted from one to another without notice. Likewise, when the infection is not treated, the patient may be an asymptomatic carrier for years, and it can infect all the sexual partners they have during that time.
