Don’t Clam Up At The Doc’s

When your stiff doctor with cold hands and a lab coat asks you about your sex life, it’s hard to ‘fess up to all the craziness. After all, you don’t necessarily want every single one of your cooter’s conquests be on your permanent record. But a new study has shown that even though it’s easily cured with antibiotics, cases of Chlamydia are on the rise and it’s all our fault. When you fudge your numbers to your GP, you may think it’s a harmless white lie, but it actually affects how you’re treated. Docs only screen for Chlamydia if they think the patient is possibly at risk because they’ve had multiple partners. Now you may argue you don’t have any symptoms to speak of, but 70-to-75% of Chlamydia cases are asymptomatic. So while you think you may know, you could have no idea. [About.com]
