In most of the cases, women are treated with antibiotics when it comes to chlamydia infection. But when antibiotics fail, what do you do? Ask for other antibiotics in Northern Beaches? The fact is, the more times you use one antibiotic, the less effect it takes. So, is there any alternative medicine to cure chlamydia infection?
Before you start, you should know what is chlamydia infection
Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted disease (STD). It is important to note that many people (both women and men) who are infected with chlamydia do not have any symptoms and may not be aware that they are infected. However, the infection can cause permanent damage to the fallopian tubes in a woman and can lead to future infertility and increase the risk of ectopic pregnancy. Chlamydia infection during pregnancy can also increase a woman's risk of having a baby with low birth weight.
Traditional Chinese Medicine has always been a treasure in treating this infection. To be more specific, some herbs in TCM can clear up pathogens and treat infections just like antibiotics. Honeysuckle, Fructus Gardeniae, Scutellaria Baicalensis are all herbs which are highly effective in killing pathogens of chlamydia.
In women, except for discomfort with urination, chlamydia may also cause abdominal pain, painful intercourse, abnormal bleeding or vaginal discharge. Therefore, TCM or acupuncture for promoting blood and Qi circulation, and for regulating menses is required for treating chlamydia in women. If the infection is left untreated, it can result in tubal blockage, pelvic inflammatory disease, hydrosalpinx and sometimes endometritis.
What causes chlamydia?
Chlamydia is an infection caused by Chlamydia trachomatis bacteria. When an infection is present, the bacteria can be present in the urethra, cervix and vagina of an infected person. It can also live in the throat. Any type of sexual contact (vaginal, anal, or oral) with an infected person can spread the infection.
Young people who are sexually active are at high risk for chlamydia. An infected mother can also spread the infection to her baby at the time of birth as the baby passes through the vaginal canal. The most common complications of chlamydia acquired through the birth canal are eye damage and pneumonia.
Sexual transmitted diseases can sometimes turn life threatening and, thus, it is a smart choice to treat yourself with Traditional Chinese Medicine which would cure the problem in a natural way.
