Chlamydia can be extremely painful. There are several symptoms that you should look for if you suspect you might have this sexually transmitted disease, including painful urination, unusual discharge and bleeding after sex. At the first sign of any of these symptoms, seek medical attention right away. Chlamydia has the highest complication rate in sexually transmitted diseases. The more time that it goes undiagnosed, the longer you might be potentially spreading it to sexual partners.

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease caused by the human papilloma virus, also known as HPV. Chlamydia is one of the most common STDs, affecting more than six million Americans every year. Chlamydia is a bacterial infection that infects both men and women. Chlamydia is caused when there is an overgrowth of bacteria called Chlamydia. When this bacterial infection gets out of control, it can spread through many of your organs, including your blood, which carries the bacteria throughout your body. You can become infected with this disease while having unprotected sex with an infected person.
