How likely are females with chlamydia to get HIV?
If you are infected with chlamydia, you will be more likely to be infected with HIV, if exposed.
No you can not catch hiv from Chlamydia.
Chlamydia does not cause or turn into HIV or AIDS. A person with chlamydia can get HIV more easily if exposed.
No, most people with chlamydia do not have HIV. However, it's important that anyone diagnosed with chlamydia be tested for HIV, syphilis, and gonorrhea.
Chlamydia doesn't affect everyone, but it's very common. In females, 50% will have had chlamydia by the time they're 30. The rates are likely the same in males.
Yes, you can have chlamydia and HIV at the same time.
Chlamydia is curable whether or not someone has HIV.
If you have chlamydia, you may or may not have HIV. It's important that you get tested for all STDs if you've been infected with chlamydia.
Studies suggest that while reported rates of chlamydia are higher in females than in males, case rates in the general population are probably equal. Reported rates are higher because routine screening of females is more likely than screening of males. See related link for references.
Yes; a HIV positive person can test negative for chlamydia.
Yes, both females and males can get chlamydia.
more males than females are diagnosed with hiv/aids
You can get chlamydia and HIV at the same time by having sex with someone who has both.
Both are spread by sex, but you can have either one without having the other. Get tested for both.
Chlamydia can cause infertility in women, or ectopic pregnancies. It can also cause severe pelvic inflammatory disease. If you aren't being treated, you're also more likely to catch HIV while you have Chlamydia.
While reported cases are higher in females than in males, studies in the general population suggest that males and females are equally likely to be infected with chlamydia. Because routine screening of males is not common in general health care practices, their infections may go undetected more often. See related links for references.
It is easier to pass chlamydia.
It's easier to get HIV while you have chlamydia because of changes in the reproductive tract due to infection. Also, if you haven't changed the risk factors that made getting chlamydia possible, you are also at risk for HIV. I don't know of any research or mechanism by which past chlamydia can increase the risk of future HIV.
Chlamydia and HIV are different infections with different causes, symptoms, and treatments. One can't turn into the other.
No, you can get HIV or AIDS without having chlamydia.
Chlamydia can be treated in a woman.
No, it's only detected by a chlamydia test.
No. HIV virus is different from chlamydia, although they share risk factors. Someone diagnosed with one should be tested for the other.
Yes, you can donate blood if you have chlamydia, most likely. It is possible that the blood bank will want you to defer donation, though, until you're outside of the HIV window period. Chlamydia is not blood borne. It's spread through oral, anal, or vaginal sex.
Chlamydia is a common bacterial infection that is sexually transmitted. HIV (Human Immunodeficiency Virus) is the virus that causes AIDS (Acquired Immune Deficiency Syndrome). HIV is contracted by exposure to infected blood, semen, vaginal fluid or breast milk. Being infected with Chlamydia can place someone at higher risk for acquiring HIV, because the infection makes the body more susceptible to other sexually transmitted diseases. However, without being exposed to HIV, a person will not become… Read More
Yes it does; you are more apt to catch HIV if infected with a STI. Since the STDs reduce you immune system response, your immune system is less likely to protect you from the HIV infection. Yes having STDs such as herpes and chlamydia does increase the risk of getting and spreading HIV.
In females, chlamydia can affect the vaginal, cervix, uterus, fallopian tubes, peritoneum, rectum, eyes, and throat.
About 3% to 6% in the US have chlamydia at any given time. Rates of infection in the general population appear to be the same among males and females, although female reported cases are higher (likely due to programs encouraging screening in young women). In females, 50% will have chlamydia by the age of 30. The rates are probably similar for males. See related link for references.
Chlamydia will likely recur in exposed to the bacteria again. Among teen females, one in four to one in five will have chlamydia again within two years of treatment. It is critical that all patients get retested for chlamydia three months after treatment. Annual testing and testing with a new partner are also important.
Like other females, 80-90% of females with a hysterectomy will have no symptoms from chlamydia. If a woman with a total hysterectomy has chlamydia, she may be infected in the urethra and may have painful urination.
No. Chlamydia is a bacterial infection that is sexually transmitted. HIV is the virus that causes AIDS.
Ninety percent of females with chlamydia have no symptoms, so it can often go undiagnosed in females. Young women and those with a new partner should be tested.
No, chlamdydia could cause a miscarriage though. Chlamydia does not cause problems if you treat it right away. But left untreated, it can lead to serious problems, especially for women: * If it spreads it can cause pelvic inflammatory disease. This serious infection can make it hard or impossible for a woman to get pregnant. * Pregnant women who have chlamydia often pass it to their babies at birth. If the infection gets in a… Read More
Research suggests that the transmission rates from males and females are probably equal. Females have more reported cases, probably due to screening programs, but in the general population, infection rates appear to be equal in males and females.
Yes. Anyone can get it.
The CDC estimates that 6.8% of sexually active females age 14 to 19 have chlamydia. (see related link).
Chlamydia does affect your immune system, and your immune system fights chlamydia. However, unlike HIV, chlamydia does not attack the immune system cells directly.
Doxycycline and azithromycin are the preferred treatments for chlamydia in males and females.
The statement is false; chlamydia won't turn into HIV or AIDS.
Females and males get the same treatment for chlamydia. The first choice treatments are one gram of azithromycin, or doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for seven days.
The inflammation that chlamdyia causes in the urogenital tract makes it easier for HIV to enter your body.
Chlamydia, gonorrhea, HIV, and syphilis are reportable
No a drug test cannot tell if you have chlamydia. The only thing it tests for is drugs. STD and HIV are tested for by either blood work or urine test. But the test has to be specified for only STD or HIV. If the urine test is for drugs chlamydia will not show up.
80-90% of women with chlamydia do not have any symptoms. (See related link).
80 to 90% of females who have chlamydia have no symptoms. (see related link)
Acute symptoms of chlamydia in females will go away within a couple of weeks of completing treatment. If chlamydia cause caused scarring and damage via PID, symptoms may be chronic and lifelong.
Females can get chlamydia. Chlamydia causes no symptoms in most women. If a woman has symptoms, she may have painful urination, vaginal discharge, or pelvic pain.
Yes, chlamydia can cause pelvic inflammmatory disease in females, as can gonorrhea. There are other possibilities, too.
Effects chlamydia have on females are: 1) abnormal vaginal discharge, 2) burning when urinating, 3) burning and / or bleeding in the anus when defecating. If not treated, it can lead to ectopic pregnancy and PID.
Chlamydia is the most commonly reported STD. Not all STDs are reportable, though, so some non-reportable ones (like herpes or HPV) may be more common. Most women with chlamydia have no symptoms of the disease. Annual chlamydia testing is recommended for women under age 26; however, many health care providers don't provide this testing as recommended. Alaska has the highest per capita chlamydia rate in the US; New Hampshire has the lowest. Females in 2011… Read More
Probably 1 in 10 (10%) of 16 - 24 year old have chlamydia. In 2011, 70% of the reported cases of chlamydia in the US were in males and females age 15 to 24. The CDC estimates that 6.8% of sexually active females age 14 to 19 have chlamydia (see related link).
