Finding a perfect gift is stressful, be it chocolates, jewelry, flowers, or a romantic dinner for two. Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted infection in Chatham-Kent. Eighty per cent of women and 50 per cent of men have no symptoms at all, and it spre easily through unprotected sex.
The STI can be brought into new relationships from old relationships. Symptoms include bleeding between periods, stomach pain, and pain while urinating. Left untreated, STIs can have serious consequences — such as trouble getting pregnant, life threatening illnesses, and complications with newborn babies.
STIs can be prevented easily with proper condom use. Condoms are available free through the health unit without having to see a nurse. If you are not sure how to use a condom properly, nurses are there to answer any questions you might have. The health unit says testing is available in Chatham, Wallaceburg, Blenheim, Ridgetown and Tilbury without appointment.
If you are having symptoms, officials say an appointment may be necessary. They also recommend testing any time a couple is considering an intimate relationship. Chlamydia is curable, and medication is available for free.
