Sexually Transmitted Diseases and Stinky Urine: Chlamydia

Chlamydia

In some cases, the STD Chlamydia can cause stinky urine.
 
Chlamydia is an infection of the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis.  It usually affects the genitals or the eyes.  It is more common than other STDs: about 1 million people in the US have it.
 
 

Chlamydia is typically transmitted through sexual intercourse (including vaginal, anal and oral), but can also be transmitted to a baby during childbirth if the mother has it.

 

Most women who have Chlamydia do not know it, as it is often asymptomatic for women.  Men usually have symptoms, especially white discharge from the penis and possibly pain when urinating.  Regardless of gender or whether you have symptoms, it is important to get this STD treated.  It can cause pelvic inflammatory disease in women and testicular pain in men.  If left untreated, Chlamydia can cause problems with the reproductive system.
