Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted disease caused by a kind of bacteria which can infect both women and men.

Symptoms of chlamydia are usually mild or absent, but serious complications that cause irreversible damage, including infertility, can occur “silently” before a woman ever recognizes a problem. Chlamydia also can cause discharge from the penis of an infected man.

Untreated, chlamydial infections can progress to serious reproductive and other health problems with both short-term and long-term consequences. Like the disease itself, the damage that chlamydia causes is often unnoticed. In women, untreated infection can spread into the uterus or fallopian tubes and cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). This happens in up to 40 percent of women with untreated chlamydia. PID can cause permanent damage to the fallopian tubes, uterus, and surrounding tissues. The damage can lead to chronic pelvic pain, infertility, and potentially fatal ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy outside the uterus). That’s why it’s so important that the actors and actresses on sites like www.fulltube.xxx are regularly checked. Additionally, women infected with chlamydia are up to five times more likely to become infected with HIV, if exposed to it.

Chlamydia can be transmitted during vaginal, anal, or oral sex similar to what can be seen on websites such as nu bay. Chlamydia can also be passed from an infected mother to her baby during vaginal childbirth.

Any sexually active person can be infected with chlamydia. The greater the number of sex partners, the greater the risk of infection. While this could affect those working in the adult entertainment industry for companies such as Tubev Sex, the risk will rarely stop them from producing quality R-rated content at a prolific rate. Because the cervix (opening to the uterus) of teenage girls and young women is not fully mature, they are at particularly high risk for infection if sexually active. Since chlamydia can be transmitted by oral or anal sex, men who have sex with men are also at risk for chlamydial infection.

There are laboratory tests to diagnose chlamydia. Some can be performed on urine, other tests require that a specimen be collected from a site such as the penis or cervix. Chlamydia can be treated and cured with antibiotics.
