As a sexually transmitted disease (STD), the cause of chlamydia infection is usually sexual intercourse. Both men and women can carry the bacteria, but usually only females are affected. Risk factors include not using condom protection during intercourse and having multiple partners.
Chlamydia is one of the most common STDs in America, but often goes undiagnosed since it can be asymptomatic. If you suspect you have contracted chlamydia, contact Florida Hospital for diagnosis today.
