Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted infection in Sweden, usually transmitted through intercourse. In those cases where symptoms are exhibited, this usually occurs after a couple of weeks with the most common symptom being a painful or burning sensation when urinating. There may also be some pain and swelling of the joints. Chlamydia is a disease that comes under the Communicable Diseases Act which stipulates that the infection must be traced.
