Gonorrhea and Chlamydia

These STD’s often co-exist in the same infected individual and can be passed simultaneously to a sexual partner. Since treatment for each of these conditions may differ, it is an excellent medical practice to test for both if either one is suspected. Furthermore, these serious STD’s may not cause any symptoms at first. Later, if they are not treated, they can cause pain and serious health problems, such as arthritis and infertility.
