Chlamydia Prevention Singapore

Chlamydia Prevention in Singapore: Chlamydia is a bacterial infection that can be transmitted by sex. It’s easily treated, but if left untreated can cause infertility, blindess, and arthritis.

Prevention/Vaccination

There is currently no vaccine against chlamydia. However, condoms are effective at preventing the disease. Using a condom every time you have sex, whether it’s vaginal, oral, or anal sex, will provide good (though not perfect) protection against chlamydia. Performing oral sex on a woman is already unlikely to transmit chlamydia, but the use of a dental dam, which is a sheet of latex that you place over the woman’s genitals to provide a barrier during oral sex, can help protect against chlamydia and other sexually transmitted infections.

The only way to be absolutely sure that you don’t get chlamydia is to avoid having sex, or to have sex only in the context of a long-term mutually monogamous relationship.
