From time immemorial, treatment of sexually transmitted diseases has been done effectively through the procedures written in Ayurveda.

Treatment of sexual problems is documented in detail in these ancient books, and even today, they are used with similar success rates.
Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease caused due to the infection of Chlamydiatrachomatis. It affects both males and females. However, more than 50% of men remain asymptomatic.
TYPES OF CHLAMYDIA
Chlamydia is a type of bacteria that causes various diseases in men and women. Chlamydia is known for the transmission of Sexually Transmitted Diseases.
Still, different forms of chlamydia cause multiple diseases in humans. Following are the three different variants of chlamydia:
1) Chlamydia trachomatis: These bacteria are responsible for causing sexually transmitted diseases. This is a recurring infection, i.e. once treated, a person can contract it again through unprotected sexual intercourse. However, shared in males and females, the consequences of untreated chlamydia infection are more severe in women.
2) Chlamydia pneumonia is a condition causing lung infection, and the disease may progress to pneumonia. It is not a sexually transmitted disease.
3) Chlamydia psittaci: Although rare in humans, the infection of these bacteria may cause parrot fever.
CAUSES OF CHLAMYDIA
Chlamydia is a common Sexually Transmitted Disease, and the causative agent is Chlamydia Trachomatis. The following are the causes of Chlamydia:
1) Unprotected Sex: This is the most common cause of transmission of this disease. Any unprotected sex, whether vaginal or rectal, with the infected person, leads to the transmission of this disease. Further, it is to be noted that the disease, in its initial stage, does not present any symptoms.
2) Touching the genitals: Even in the absence of any sexual intercourse, the disease can be spread by touching the genitals of the infected person. The bacteria, in the infected person, is present in the urethra or rectum of both males and female or females. In addition, it may be present in the vagina or cervix.
3) Transmission in children: The infants may come into contact with the disease while moving from the vaginal canal of the mother during birth.
4) Recurring Infection: Chlamydia recurrence is a common phenomenon. Patients who have chlamydia are at high risk of developing this condition again. To prevent the recurrence, the patient should consult doctors who are experts in treating this disease. Dr. Manu Rajput and Dr. Kanu Rajput of Sidri International are the best ayurvedic doctors for treating chlamydia in the Delhi-NCR region.
RISK FACTORS OF CHLAMYDIA
Chlamydia is not transmitted by kissing the infected person. However, certain risk factors increase the risk of transmission of this infection:
1) Multiple Partners: People engaged in sex with multiple partners are at high risk of developing chlamydia. Adolescents are at more risk as they quickly change their partners.
2) HIV infection: People suffering from HIV infections are at higher risk of developing chlamydia due to the compromised immune system in such patients.
3) Medical history of Sexually Transmitted Disease: When the body’s defence system gets compromised with the infection caused by some pathogens, the person is at higher risk of invasion by other bacteria or pathogens.
4) Age: People of sexually active age, i.e. between 24 to 28 years, are at higher risk of getting infected with chlamydia.
5) Cervical ectopy: Women with cervical ectopy are twice at risk of contracting chlamydia than normal women.
6) Man having sex with another man: Compared to heterosexual males, the homosexual male is at increased risk due to rectal or oral sex.

Symptoms in females:
• Abnormal vaginal discharge
• Painful urination or blood in the urine

WAYS TO DIAGNOSE CHLAMYDIA
In males and females, there are no particular symptoms at the initial stage of the disease. Thus, although the potential for transmitting the disease, the infected person is not generally diagnosed at an early stage. The diagnosis of chlamydia can be made through the following techniques;
1) A Urine test: Infection is generally found in the urethra; thus, a urine test may detect the presence of this bacteria.
2) Swab test: This process is commonly used in diagnosing women for chlamydia infection. The swab is taken from the vagina or cervix and is cultured on a medium. The presence of chlamydia in the culture confirms the diagnosis.
COMPLICATIONS OF CHLAMYDIA
If left untreated, chlamydia infection may progress to severe medical conditions. It may lead to infertility in men and women by damaging the reproductive system. In some situations, the damage is irreversible. In males, untreated chlamydia may lead to epididymitis and receive arthritis. At the same time, in females, the complications are pelvic inflammatory disease and pregnancy complications.
