Prevent Chlamydial Infection

 To prevent chlamydial infection:

 
-Use condoms correctly every time you have sex.
-Limit the 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.
 
Women ages 25 and younger who are having or have had any kind of sex (oral, vaginal or anal) should see their doctor on a routine basis to be screened for chlamydia and other STIs. Women should also avoid douching because it reduces the amount of good bacteria in the vagina and may increase the risk of infection.
 
If chlamydia is left untreated, it can spread to different parts of your body and do additional damage. If chlamydia spreads to the eyes, it can cause eye infections and blindness. 
 
In women, if left untreated, chlamydia infection can cause pelvic inflammatory diseasewhich can lead to damage of the fallopian tubes(the tubes connecting the ovaries to the uterus) or even cause infertility (the inability to have children). The infection can scar these areas and lead to infertility or an ectopic pregnancy (a pregnancy that occurs outside of the uterus). If an infected mother transfers the infection to her baby, it can cause pneumonia or an eye infection that could result in blindness. 
 
In men, chlamydia can spread to the testicles and prostate. Chlamydia can cause a condition called nongonococcal urethritis (NGU) -- an infection of the urethra (the tube by which men and women pass urine), epididymitis -- an infection of the epididymis (the tube that carries sperm away from the testes), or proctitis -- an inflammation of the rectum. This can cause swelling, painful urination, fever and pain in the lower back.
