English: Chlamydia is the most common STI in Uppsala and Sweden. The infection’s transmitted mainly through unprotected sex where mucous membranes and body fluids are involved. The most common symptoms of chlamydia are pain when peeing and/or getting strange discharges from the urethra or vagina. But usually, chlamydia is symptomless and you may not know that you have it. Chlamydia is treated with antibiotics, and if left untreated, can lead to infertility, especially for people who have uteruses. Make sure you and your partner(s) stay healthy by getting regular check ups, especially if there’s a chance that one of you’ve been exposed to the infection.
