Chlamydia Infection in Females

Chlamydia Infection in Females | Symptoms & Signs | Diagnosis & Tests | Prevention & Expectations | Treatment & Monitoring

What are the signs and symptoms of the infection?

Most chlamydia infections do not cause any symptoms. For this reason, a sexual partner may be exposed without either partner knowing it. They may pass the organism to other unsuspecting partners.

Symptoms of a chlamydia infection of the cervix in a female may include the following:

  • vaginal discharge
  • mild pain and discomfort when urinating
  • abdominal distress, if the infection has spread to the uterus, tubes, or ovaries
  • pain in the upper right of the abdomen, if the liver is involved
  • Chlamydia infections of the throat usually cause a sore throat.

    Chlamydia infections of the rectum can cause the following:

  • rectal pain
  • discharge from the rectum, which may be bloody
  • frequent, painful urges to have a bowel movement
