Will A Yeast INfection Treatment Mask Chlamydia

“Will a yeast infection treatment mask Chlamydia?” This is a very important question that has been asked especially if you’ve self diagnosed yourself from your symptoms.

What is Chlamydia

Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted disease in the USA. It is an infection caused by the bacteria, Chlamydia trachomatis, and this bacteria infects over 2.8 million Americans every year.

Chlamydia symptoms

Chlamydia can carry no symptoms until it’s too late, and for this reason it’s also known as the “silent disease.” Over three quarters of women and half of men will have Chlamydia, and have no symptoms. Symptoms will usually appear after 2 to 3 weeks of being infected.

When the symptoms do appear in women they can include…

  • Vaginal discharge
  • Abdominal pain
  • Burning sensation when urinating

In men they will include…

  • Penis discharge
  • Burning sensation when urinating
  • Burning and itching around the opening of the penis

As you can see, the symptoms are similar to the symptoms of a yeast infection, and are the main reason why many men and women self diagnose themselves and get it wrong.

If Chlamydia isn’t treated correctly

Chlamydia, if left untreated or not treated correctly can cause pelvic inflammatory disease ( PID ). This can cause permanent damage to the reproductive organs in a woman which include…

  • Fallopian tubes
  • Uterus
  • And surrounding tissues

This can cause infertility, and can be heartbreaking if you’re planning to start a family one day. You can also suffer from chronic pelvic pain, and suffer from an ectopic pregnancy.

Treating Chlamydia with a yeast infection cure

If you start treating your Chlamydia with a yeast infection treatment you can feel some relief from the symptoms, but this is only temporary, and will, in the end, only make your infection worse.

A doctors diagnosis is so important when you are suffering from any symptoms that are similar to those of a yeast infection. No one needs to suffer from the consequences of a wrong diagnosis, and a simple visit to your doctor can prevent this.
