Date:2012-05-03 click:

Chlamydia is a common STD, it often has no symptoms. Even it can be easily treated, it can easily spread with or without symptoms as well. Fortunately, condoms use offers good protection. 

We all want to protect ourselves and each other from infections like chlamydia. The best treatment is preventive: Practice safe sex strategies. To reduce risk of chlamydia infection:
- Use condoms correctly every time you have sex.
- Limit your number of sex partners, and do not go back and forth between partners.
- Practice sexual abstinence, or limit sexual contact to one uninfected partner.
- If you think you are infected, avoid sexual contact and see a doctor.
Any genital symptoms such as discharge or burning during urination or an unusual sore or rash should be a signal to stop having sex and to consult a doctor immediately. If you are told you have chlamydia or any other sexually transmitted disease and receive treatment, you should notify all of your recent sex partners so that they can see a doctor and be treated. Because chlamydia often occurs without symptoms, people who are infected may unknowingly pass it onto their sex partners. Many doctors recommend that all persons who have more than one sex partner should be regularly tested for chlamydia, even in the absence of symptoms.
