Chlamydia is the most commonly reported STI among young people in Australia and is on the rise. It’s a curable bacterial infection usually showing no symptoms and is easily treated with antibiotics. If left untreated, it can sometimes lead to more serious health problems like pelvic inflammatory disease, painful swelling of the testicles, complications with pregnancy and infertility.
Symptoms and signs in people who have penis/testicles can include:
👉 a discharge from the penis
👉 discomfort or irritation at the tip of the penis
👉 pain when peeing
👉 swollen and sore testes.
