The Silent Infection
A Canadian study between 2009 and 2011 found that nearly 14% of people between the ages of 14 and 59 may be infected by the herpes simplex 2 virus and 1% tested positive for chlamydia. Almost all of those affected were unaware they were infected, and that's why chlamydia is often called the silent infection. Simple urine and blood tests can spot the infections. Antibiotics can cure chlamydia infections, and prevent serious fertility problems, and other medical and psychological problems, too.
