How to test chlamydia infection in men?
1.Take your temperature if you seem to have a fever. Fever is often present in active chlamydia infections. However, since fever is associated with so many other conditions, you should be on the lookout for other chlamydia symptoms as well.
2.Take note if you experience a burning or stinging sensation when you urinate. This is one of the most commonly reported symptoms of chlamydia.
3.Recognize any unusual discharge . Discharge that is runny, cloudy, a strange color or that smells bad is a typical symptom of chlamydia in men.
4.Know that if your testicles become swollen and/or painful, you may have chlamydia. This symptom usually appears in the mid to later stages of chlamydia.
5.Be aware that oral chlamydia can result in a sore throat and anal chlamydia can cause swelling of the rectum.
6.Know when you last had sexual intercourse. Symptoms of chlamydia usually begin to appear within 1 to 3 weeks of having sex with an infected partner.
If you are sexually active with more than one partner at a time, you should consider getting tested for chlamydia every 3 to 6 months.
Be aware that nearly fifty percent of men who have an active chlamydia infection have no symptoms at all. This makes having an annual physical exam, that includes testing for chlamydia, all the more important.
Untreated chlamydia can cause scarring of the testes in men. This scarring can lead to infertility. Infertility due to chlamydia can happen fairly quickly, usually within 6 to 8 weeks of contracting the infection.
