  Description
Chlamydia is a common infection caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis. In most cases the infection is asymptomatic and can linger for months or years before being discovered. First symptoms may appear 5 to 10 days after a person got the infection.

Chlamydia usually spread through sexual contact. The disease can also be passed from an infected mother to her baby during normal childbirth.

If the bacteria reach the eyes, may produce Chlamydia conjunctivitis or trachoma, which was once the most important cause of blindness worldwide. The bacteria can be also found in the rectum and throat of an infected person.

Recurrent infection with chlamydia is common.
  Diagnosis

After a physical examination, the following procedures are commonly indicated for confirmation of the disease:

- Urine test

- Cervix (for women) or urethra (for men) swab test
