Page 2, Cloverdale Reveille, August 6, 1997 Chlamydia is country's number one cause of sexually transmitted disease Chlamydia trachomatis, a bac- teria, is the country's number one cause of sexually transmit- ted disease (STD). It accounts for more infections in men and women than all other STDs com- bined. The annual cost of chlamydia and its consequences axceeds $2 billion dollars. Unfortunately, chlamydia is also the most frequently over- looked STD, because so many infections are undetected or "si- lent", a scourge especially for young women. In 1995, over a half million cases of chlamydia were report- ed nationwide. Last year, over 61,000 cases were reported in California, and 429 cases in Sonoma County. Even with those large num- bers, chlamydia is vastly under reported, according to Dr. George Flores, Sonoma Coun- ty's Public Health Officer. "There are likely to be hun- dreds more cases of chlamydia here each year, but because many persons with it don't have telltale symptoms of burning or discharge, they fail to get the laboratory test to detect it. Con- sequently, it is mostly those who get tested who end up being di- agnosed and reported," says Dr. Flores. Half of the cases of chlamydia occur among sexually active young women, 15 to 19 years old. Up to 40% of women with undi- agnosed chlamydia will develop serious internal infection, such as pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) which can lead to infertil- ity or tubal pregnancy. If treated promptly with ap- propriate antibiotics, chlamydia can be easily cured. But testing is crucial. Without a test, an infected person may not know that they have it. Dr. flores ad- vises, Testing for chlamydia should be a routine part of the health care for pregnant wom- en, sexually active adolescents, and persons who have changed sexual partners." New tests for chlamydia are easier to botany and are more accurate. A urine sample is all that is needed. With more precise testing and treatment for chlamydia, the spread of cases can be abated, thus saving dollars and lives. The new chlamydia tests are now available locally.
