Why HPV and Chlamydia?
HPV infection and chlamydial infection are sexually transmitted infections that, if left untreated for a long time, cause various diseases and can be the cause of infertility in both men and women.

What is HPV?
Human papillomavirus (HPV) infection is a viral, usually chronic, disease in which the causative agent remains in the latent stage, but may cause clinically diverse damage to the skin, upper respiratory tract, genital mucosa, precancerous or cancerous diseases.
During their lifetime, 4 out of 5 sexually active people at some point in their lives become infected with HPV
Many people overcome the virus themselves but in other cases they become carriers of the virus, increasing the risk of cancer of the cervix, vagina, vulva, anus, penis, mouth, pharynx, larynx, tongue root, salivary glands and tonsils.

Chlamydial infection
The bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis causes chlamydial infection.
It is one of the most common sexually transmitted diseases in the world. The number of people infected with this bacterium is increasing every year. The majority of infected women (80 percent) and half of men have no symptoms signaling the disease.
In Europe, two-thirds (68%) of chlamydial infections occur among young people aged 15-24.
