Chlamydia trachomatis is a sexually transmitted bacterium that causes an infection in the urogenital tract. Chlamydia infections are among the most common sexually transmitted diseases. They are usually free of symptoms but they can also lead to inflammations in the eyes or the urinary tract or to arthritis. Untreated infections often cause infertility and they increase the risk of an ectopic (tubal) pregnancy and premature birth. Especially younger women (between the age of 15 and 25) who change their sexual partners more often, as well as women wishing to have a baby should perform the self-test regularly. Using theVeroval® self-test“Chlamydia” from HARTMANN, you can quickly and safely find out whether you are infected with the chlamydia trachomatis bacterium. All you need are 15 minutes of your time.
