What Causes Chlamydia?
What causes chlamydia? If you are a sexually active male who falls into the eighteen to 34 age range, you must know the answers to this question. Chlamydia is a very common STD. The bacterium, Chlamydia trachomatis, which is found in chlamydia, can harm a man’s coiled tubes in the back of the testicles. The scariest fact about chlamydia is that the damages are usually permanent. Therefore, you should be aware of the three main ways of getting chlamydia.
You can get infected through sexual acts. The first way of getting chlamydia is to engage in sexual acts such as vaginal, anal or oral sex. Let’s say your sexual partner has chlamydia and you don’t know about it. The chance that you will get chlamydia is very high, even though you have one sexual partner. In order to be safe than sorry, both of you should get tested for chlamydia on a regular basis. Note that this might seem trouble, but it will worth it in a long run.
You are in contact with any human fluids. The second way of getting chlamydia is to touch any human fluids like semen, vaginal fluid and/or blood. You might think you are safe if you and your partner have been using protection during sexual intercourse. Nevertheless, you will still have a chance to get chlamydia if your partner has the infection already. For example, you have touched your partner’s blood by accident, you might have contracted chlamydia. You are fine only if she is STD-free or else it only takes one touch to say hello to chlamydia.
Limit the number of your sexual partners. The last way of getting chlamydia is to have plenty of sexual partners. The more sexual partners you have, the greater the chance to catch chlamydia. Although all your sexual partners might be STD-free, it doesn’t necessary mean that all of their sexual partners were fine.
