The only way to tell for sure if you have chlamydia is to have your doctor perform a lab test.


Symptoms of chlamydia include:

In women, chlamydia can cause:

*A burning sensation when urinating

*An abnormal vaginal discharge

*Light vaginal bleeding (especially after intercourse)

*Pain in the pelvis or lower abdomen


In men, chlamydia can cause:

*An abnormal release of fluid that is not urine or semen (called penile discharge)

*A burning sensation when urinating


In addition, about 75% of women and 50% of men with chlamydia have no symptoms.


Hope this helps,
