    Most people with chlamydia will not have any symptoms. This means that it can go undiagnosed for a long time, potentially leading to serious complications. If symptoms are present they may be overlooked as they can be similar to those of other conditions e.g.  thrush or cystitis. If symptoms occur they generally appear 2 – 14 days after infection and can include:
    In women

    • pelvic pain
    • painful and heavy periods
    • deep pain with vaginal sex
    • bleeding between periods or after having sex
    • frequent and burning urination
    • unusual vaginal discharge.
    In men
    • discharge from the penis
    • burning or pain when urinating
    • itching or irritation around the opening of the penis
    • pain or soreness in the testicles.

    For more information Queensland women can call the Health Information on 3839 9988 or 1800 017 676 (toll free outside Brisbane).
