Even with Chlamydia Women can Enjoy a Great Sex Life

Fast, Easy, Affordable. At-Home Testing

When it comes to chlamydia, women aged 14-24 have a 1 in 20 chance of being infected.* They may have once been the exception to the rule, but STDs are a part of life.

However, your sexcapades needn’t take a sabbatical. Home STD tests make detection and treatment fast and easy, so you’ll be back on the horse before you can say “yee haw!”

The low down and upside of chlamydia

An STD doesn’t mean the end of your sex life, but it’s important to know the risk. Chlamydia shows symptoms in as few as 5% of infected women, so many ladies are oblivious to their silent sickness. For this reason, experts recommend that sexually active women get periodic STD tests before there’s any damage. Untreated chlamydia infections can cause reproductive organ damage and infertility–which is just one more reason why myLAB Box’s chlamydia home test is your new best friend.

Chlamydia is the most common bacterial STD in the country. If you’ve got it, you aren’t alone. The great news is that it’s curable with a standard course of antibiotics.

Sex after chlamydia

A positive chlamydia test result will take you out of the game for a week or two, but it doesn’t spell the end of your sex life altogether. Taking control of your sexual health is empowering and sexy. A chlamydia diagnosis is no cause for panic–only action. Treat your infection, tell your partner(s), then make sure they get tested before your next date night.

Once treated, chlamydia won’t constrain your sexual activities. You won’t have recurrent outbreaks (as long as all of your partners seek treatment, too) and when diagnosed and treated early, there are no long-term effects.

If you have a chlamydia infection, you can take this opportunity to get a little more comfortable practicing safe sex and starting a sexual health conversation with your partner. By speaking to each other, working together to overcome this sickness, and protecting yourselves from other infections, your time in the bedroom can be that much more enjoyable.
