can you tell me the symptoms of chlamydia?

Silent infection: Most people with chlamydia have no symptoms allowing it to linger and cause problems without being detected. If you do have symptoms you may see vaginal or penile discharge, burning with urination, odor, irregular spotting and bleeding after sex. In worse cases you have lower abdominal pain, testicular swelling and joint pain.

Chlamydia: Some women could be asymptomatic, but the most common symptoms are vaginal discharge, lower abdominal pain, sometimes low grade fever, pain and bleeding with intercourse.

The silent disease: The vast majority of chlamydia infections have no symptoms making it easy to spread from partner to partner. People do not know they have it and pass it around. Get tested to protect yourself and others. In some cases people have discharge from the penis or vagina, burning with urination, pelvic pain and swelling in the testicles.
