CHLAMYDIA IS THE MOST COMMON STD IN SINGAPORE: What do we need to know?
What are its symptoms?
What tests are available?
Is there effective treatment?
The latest 2016 statistics from the Singapore Department of Sexually Transmitted Infections (or DSC) show that Chlamydia is the most common STD in Singapore.
There are many factors influencing this statistic but probably the most important factor is that Chlamydia infection is
often present without any symptoms. Infected persons may appear well. However, symptoms may be present in some people.
There has been an increase in the number of Chlamydia infection since the early-2000s. In order to reduce the prevalence of Chlamydia, there must be better awareness of possible infection through sex education. STD screening has to be encouraged.
Stop the spread of Chlamydia.
