In this article Pons Medical Research explains you about latent gynecologic infections and its treatment. The Chlamidia is a most common gynecologic infection.

Pons Medical Research suggests that to avoid suffering from latent gynecologic infections you should visit a gynecologist every 6-12 months. It is very important to make a complete observation including for the diagnosis of hidden infections, especially if there were new sexual partners. Chlamidia can cause a lot of diseases but in fact it is not a big problem to get a correct treatment.

During the process when you choose surrogacy agency which is expert in ICSI fertility treatment through ICSI IVF and PICSI and using ICSI Procedure, you must assured that the agency is also expert in managing Infectious diseases and its treatment during pregnancy.

Any infection, whether a respiratory virus, a childhood infection or an infection from the group of sexually transmitted diseases can be present in a latent form. What does it mean?

This occurs as a result of the individual relationship of a specific infectious agent and a specific human body.
Hidden infections must be distinguished from the carrier of infections. Conditions are completely different. When bacterium or virus is carried, it settles in the body in such a way that the immune system is not able to "see" it and form any immune response.

But with latent infection, there is an immune response, that is, the disease is present - in acute or chronic form. Among the gynecological infections most often hidden are:
--Chlamydia
--Mycoplasmosis
--Ureaplasmosis
--Gardnerella
--Cytomegalovirus infection
--Herpesvirus genital infection

Does it mean that it is dangerous? The girl lives her usual life, because she has no complaints, but she can have an infection from her sexual partner. In addition, the asymptomatic process can take a chronic course with various complications.

To avoid all this problems you should visit a gynecologist every 6-12 months. It is very important to make a complete observation including for the diagnosis of hidden infections, especially if there were new sexual partners. It happens - you can easily be ill as the results of an infection, but do not feel ill at all.

Chlamidia
Chlamydiae are nonmotile, obligate intracellular bacteria. They contain DNA, RNA, and ribosomes and make their own proteins and nucleic acids. However, they depend on the host cell for 3 of their 4 nucleoside triphosphates and use host adenosine triphosphate (ATP) to synthesize chlamydial protein. The genus Chlamydia contains 9 species; 3 of them cause human disease:

Chlamydia trachomatis - is the most common bacterial cause of STDs, including non gonococcal urethritis and epididymitis in men; cervicitis, urethritis, and pelvic inflammatory disease in women; and proctitis, lymphogranuloma venereum, and reactive arthritis (Reiter syndrome) in both sexes.

Maternal transmission of Chlamydia trachomatis - trachomatis causes neonatal conjunctivitis and pneumonia. Universal prenatal screening and treatment of pregnant women have greatly reduced the incidence of infant C. The organism can be isolated from the rectum and throat in adults (usually in men who have sex with men [MSM]). Rectal infection with L2 strains can cause severe proctocolitis that can mimic acute inflammatory bowel disease in HIV-positive MSM.

Chlamydia pneumonia
C. pneumoniae can cause pneumonia (especially in children and young adults) that may be clinically indistinguishable from pneumonia caused by Mycoplasma pneumoniae. In some patients with C. pneumoniae, pneumonia, hoarseness, and sore throat may precede coughing, which may be persistent and complicated by bronchospasm. From 6 to 19% of community-acquired pneumonia cases are due to C. pneumoniae; outbreaks of C. pneumoniae pneumonia pose a particular risk for people in closed populations (eg, nursing homes, schools, military installations, prisons). No seasonal variations in occurrence have been observed. C. pneumoniae has also been implicated as an infectious trigger of reactive airway disease.

Chlamydia psittaci
C. psittaci causes psittacosis. Strains causing human disease are usually acquired from psittacine birds (eg, parrots), causing a disseminated disease characterized by pneumonitis. Outbreaks have occurred among workers that handle turkeys and ducks in poultry processing plants.

Chlamydial species can cause persistent infection, which is often subclinical.

Treatment: Azithromycin or doxycycline

Uncomplicated lower genital tract infection is typically treated with a single dose of azithromycin (1 g po) or with a 7-day regimen of doxycycline (100 mg po bid) or some fluoroquinolones (eg, levofloxacin 500 mg po once/day). Treatment of presumed chlamydial infection is routine when gonorrhea is present. Pelvic inflammatory disease, lymphogranuloma venereum, or epididymitis is usually treated with doxycycline for 10 days.
