In brief: Bacteria

Chlamydia is a bacteria infection transmitted by sex and both men and women can contract the infection.
In men, they usually experience mild, intermittent burning with urination with possible urethral discharge. Please see your doctor to be tested if you are not certain, and use protection (condoms) to prevent spreading the infection to others until it's been confirmed. Always use condoms.
