Chlamydia And Infertility

It's Been Around For A Long Time

Sexually transmitted diseases are prevalent and often leave people with scars, lifelong illness, and in some cases, result in death. Sexually transmitted diseases have been part of the human experience from time immemorial, affecting the lives of people who contracted them in very serious ways. While STDs remain very much a part of almost all societies, many things have changed in terms of recognition and treatment. The sexual revolution of the 1960s brought with it a shift in attitudes and along with that shift, STDs became more common than ever. The commonality and frequency of STDs made treatment innovation a necessity.

Chlamydia, The Most Frequently Reported STD

The most frequently reported STD is Chlamydia. More than one million cases of Chlamydia were reported in the US in 2006 alone. Yet, even though the number is alarming, there are still many unreported cases because most people don't know they have the disease and many have never been tested or treated. Re-infection can occur frequently if a woman has several infected sexual partners.

What Is It And How Does It Affect The Body?

Caused by a bacterium called Chlamydia trachomatis, Chlamydia has the potential to cause severe damage to a woman's reproductive organs , much of which is irreversible - including infertility . The symptoms are often overlooked, and the disease is sometimes termed, "silent." If symptoms do appear, they are likely to show up within one to three weeks after exposure. Infection is caused when the bacteria contaminate the urine canal and cervix and a vaginal discharge or burning sensation during urination occurs. The infection then makes its way up through the uterus into the fallopian tubes. It can also travel from the cervix to the rectum. The infection presents with lower back and abdominal pain, fever and nausea, pain during intercourse, or bleeding between menstrual periods.

Irreparable Damage May Be Caused

There are both short and long term consequences to leaving Chlamydia untreated, affecting both general and reproductive health. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) may result. PID is the infection of the uterus or fallopian tubes and this type of infection can cause permanent damage to the reproductive organs. It presents itself with chronic pain, infertility and often, if there is a pregnancy, it is ectopic . The possibility of contracting HIV in greatly increased with PID. There is also a risk of death with PID.

Dealing With Chlamyida

Obviously, it is best if Chlamydia is caught before it can do any damage. Yearly screening, especially for women 25 years-of-age or younger, is a good start. Pregnant women should be screened for the disease as well. Testing can diagnose the presence of Chlamydia and generally the only treatment necessary to deal with the disease is a course of antibiotics. The best medicine is always prevention. Protection through long-term sexual relationship with the same partner...

Diseases That Lead To Female Infertility

Pam Stenzel has a unique way of teaching teens the dangers of STD's . She asks them to imagine a man on his hands and knees offering an engagement ring to a woman, asking her to be his wife. But there's a catch: he also has to let her know that he's got several different types of sexually transmitted diseases (STD's) that might make her infertile. He got these STD's while engaging in premarital sex, back when he was in high school.

Light Bulbs

Stenzel can rattle off six STD's that can bring on female infertility and as she does so, it's as if you can see light bulbs going on over the heads of the eighth graders in her audience. The popular lecturer tells the kids that having sex outside of marriage can have some dire consequences. She tells them that the only way to make sure you stay free of disease is to have just one partner.

Stenzel used to counsel Chicago area teenaged girls at a pregnancy crisis center but at some point, had an epiphany that these pregnant teens hadn't learned all the facts before deciding to become sexually active. "I grew tired of all the girls telling me that no one told them what happens when they decide to become sexually active," Stenzel explained. "I want you to have all the information before making that decision."

Ardent Lobbyist

The ardent lobbyist for teen abstinence tells her listeners about the psychological, emotional, and physical drawbacks to engaging in sex before adulthood. Kids worry about becoming pregnant, but have sex anyway. What they don't worry about are sexually transmitted diseases, which are a significant factor in the current epidemic of infertility.

Stenzel tells her young audience that there are more than 30 known STD's and that 24 of them can cause female infertility. The most contagious STD is also the most common one, the human Papillomavirus. This virus is a known cause of cervical cancer, and this disease necessitates a radical hysterectomy, ending the possibility of children, forever. Stenzel reiterates that the only way to remain healthy is to engage in sexual relations only within the confines of a permanent relationship that is monogamous.

Pam Stenzel's mother was 15 years old when she gave birth to Pam and subsequently put her up for adoption. Stenzel counseled teens in pregnancy crisis centers in Minneapolis and Chicago for nine years. During that time, the pregnant girls told her that no one had thought to tell them what would happen to them if they had sex before ...
