Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) and, if left untreated, can lead to serious health problems. At Cermak Immediate Care, located in Chicago, Cicero, and Roseland, we provide confidential testing and effective treatment for chlamydia, ensuring the well-being of our patients.

What is Chlamydia?

Chlamydia is caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. It can infect both men and women and can cause permanent damage to a woman’s reproductive system, making it difficult or impossible to get pregnant in the future. Often known as a “silent” infection, chlamydia can progress without showing any early symptoms, making regular screening extremely important.

Chlamydia Symptoms for Men and Women

Though many who have chlamydia may not develop noticeable symptoms, when symptoms do appear, they may include:

  • For Women: Abnormal vaginal discharge, burning sensation when urinating, pain during sexual intercourse, abdominal pain, or bleeding between periods.
  • For Men: Discharge from the penis, burning sensation when urinating, burning or itching around the opening of the penis, pain and swelling in one or both testicles (although this is less common).

At Cermak Immediate Care, our Chicago STD test doctors are experienced in diagnosing and treating STDs like chlamydia with the utmost confidentiality and care. We offer rapid and accurate testing services to help identify the disease at an early stage, which is crucial for effective treatment.

Treatment for Chlamydia

Chlamydia is treatable with antibiotics. The most common treatments include:

  • Azithromycin: A single large dose, or
  • Doxycycline: Taken twice daily for about one week.

It’s important for all sexual partners to be treated simultaneously to prevent reinfection. Patients are advised to abstain from sexual activity until the treatment is complete and all symptoms have cleared, typically about seven days after completing the course of antibiotics.
