Gonorrhea Chlamydia Picture
Gonorrhoea is a bacterial infection. It is sexually
transmitted and can infect the cervix, urethra, rectum, anus and throat.
Chlamydia is the most common treatable bacterial
sexually transmitted infection. It can cause serious problems later in
life if it is not treated (see 'Complications' section). Chlamydia
infects the cervix in women. The urethra, rectum and eyes can be
infected in both sexes. Occasionally chlamydia lives in other parts of
the body, including the throat, lungs and liver.
