First let's understand what chlamydia is. The pathogenic mechanism of chlamydia is to inhibit the metabolism of infected cells, dissolve and destroy cells and lead to the release of lytic enzymes, the cytotoxic effect of metabolites, and cause allergic reactions and autoimmunity.
The specific immunity acquired after infection is weak, the duration is short, easy to repeat infection, and incomplete clearance can cause persistent infection. In addition, there are a large number of asymptomatic silent infections.
The incubation period for chlamydia is 1-3 weeks, and about half of patients have no symptoms. Urethritis is the primary occurrence of symptomatic chlamydia infection in men. The specific symptoms are urethra itching, tingling or burning sensation, urine pain, slight redness of the urethral opening, and urethra discharge is severe and small amounts.
Chlamydia infection can be associated with about 50%-60% of gonorrhea. Symptomatic female chlamydia infection mainly manifests as mucous cervicitis, increased leucorrhea, cervical edema, erosion, and other symptoms.
The primary way chlamydia gets infected is through sexual contact. Chlamydia infection is easily caused by the environment of the reproductive organs of both sexes, especially women. Sex can lead to chlamydia infection, the main cause of chlamydia infection. Once one of the couples is tested positive for chlamydia and there are symptoms of chlamydia infection, they must be treated early to cure completely. Otherwise, the other person is likely to be infected.
Routes of chlamydia infection:
1. Chlamydia can be contracted through close contacts, such as chlamydia conjunctivitis. Chlamydia can be contracted by contact with secretions from a patient's eyes.
2. Chlamydia can also become infected through the respiratory tract. It can be present in droplets in the patient's respiratory tract. Patients can spread chlamydia by talking or sneezing.
3. Chlamydia can also be transmitted through indirect contact, which is a more important route of transmission of chlamydia infection. Chlamydia can also become infected when it comes into contact with clothes, bath wares, towels, and toiletries used by patients with chlamydia.
So we must pay attention to preventing infection in our daily life. Once diagnosed with chlamydia infection, people must take timely medication treatment and choose traditional Chinese medicine. Fuyan Pill is a kind of herbal medicine for women to treat chlamydia. It is very effective in the treatment of gynecological diseases. Not only women can be infected with chlamydia, but also men can be infected with chlamydia. Generally, men can take Diuretic And Anti-inflammatory Pill.

To avoid chlamydia, paying attention to personal hygiene first is essential. Wash your hands and clothes regularly, especially your underwear, daily. When cleaning, you need to choose professional tools, and after cleaning, you should also pay attention to exposure to the sun and do a good job of disinfection.
