The use of a condom is essential to protect yourself and your partners against STDs. If you have any concerns, you should have an STD screening test. In the event of an infection, make sure you follow the correct treatment and inform your sexual partners.
What are the symptoms of Chlamydia?
Most Chlamydia infections do not cause any visible symptoms.

The symptoms may appear a few days or a few months after contamination:
- abnormal vaginal discharge
- clear discharge from the vagina, penis or anus
- redness of the mucous membrane
- painful burning sensation when urinating.
