Chlamydia and urinary tract infections (UTIs) can have some similar symptoms, but they are caused by different types of infections and require different treatments.
Both chlamydia and UTIs can cause painful urination, frequent urination, and a sense of urgency to urinate. However, chlamydia may also cause vaginal discharge or bleeding between periods, while UTIs can sometimes cause lower abdominal pain or discomfort.
It’s important to note that many people with chlamydia do not experience any symptoms at all, which is why it’s sometimes called a “silent” infection. If you are experiencing any symptoms or are concerned that you may have chlamydia or a UTI, it’s important to see a healthcare provider for testing and treatment.
