Prevention of Chlamydia:

Chlamydia-Disease Information: DSTD (Excerpt)

Safe sexual behavior and seeking proper health care can help keep people from becoming infected or re-infected with chlamydia and from experiencing chlamydia complications.

  • Use condoms correctly every time you have sex.

    Persons who engage in sexual behaviors that can place them at risk for STDs should use latex or polyurethane condoms every time they have sex. A condom put on the penis before starting sex and worn until the penis is withdrawn can help protect both the male and the female partner from chlamydia. When a male condom cannot be used appropriately, sex partners should consider using a female condom

    Common methods of birth control, like the oral contraceptive pill or the contraceptive shot or implant, do not give women protection from STDs. Women who use these methods should also use condoms every time they have sex to prevent STDs.

    Condoms do not provide complete protection from all STDs. Sores and lesions of other STDs on infected men and women may be present in areas not covered by the condom, resulting in transmission of infection to a new person.
      

  • Limit the number of sex partners, and do not go back and forth between partners.

    Practice sexual abstinence, or limit sexual contact to one uninfected partner.
      

  • Get a screening test.

    If you are young, sexually active, and do not use condoms correctly every time you have sex, you should be screened for chlamydia at least once a year. It has been shown that screening and treatment of women with chlamydia infection of the cervix reduces the likelihood of PID. All pregnant women should have a screening test for chlamydia.

Chlamydia: NWHIC (Excerpt)

The easiest and most effective way to avoid chlamydial infections and other STDs is by abstaining from sexual intercourse. If you do have sex, using condoms (rubbers) or diaphragms during sexual intercourse may help reduce the transmission of chlamydial bacteria. Many doctors recommend that all persons who have more than one sex partner, especially women under 25, be tested for chlamydial infection regularly, even in the absence of symptoms.
