Chlamydial infection not only affects the urogenital sphere, as many patients. It is able to spread throughout the body. Time established the diagnosis of such diseases as chlamydia allows you to avoid the unpleasant consequences in both men and women. Men, who have had chlamydia may develop urethritis, prostatitis, cysts of the prostate, decreased potency, sterility. In women, the disease can lead to infertility, endometritis, miscarriage.
Diagnosis of chlamydia usually difficult due to the fact that this disease rarely occurs in an acute form. Patients usually go to the doctor on other occasions, and in the course of the detailed examination reveals this disease.
Currently, there are sophisticated methods of diagnosis of chlamydia, which allow to establish the diagnosis with 100% accuracy. First of all, it is necessary to conduct laboratory research. These methods today give accurate results. These include: cytological diagnosis, immunological method allows to determine the presence of serum protivodiareynah immunoglobulins) and PCR-diagnostics (molecular biological method). To perform this diagnostic complex is possible only in specialized laboratories.
No less dangerous disease is herpes. The consequences of this infection also pose a danger to patients of both sexes. Contamination can occur through close household or sexual contacts. It is often asymptomatic, occasionally accompanied characteristic manifestations. Diagnosis of herpes in the period of exacerbation of the outer forms of the disease is simplified, because the symptoms are fairly typical.

The most dangerous consequence is that this infection is considered a precursor to cancer and can cause cervical cancer in women, prostate cancer in men.
Diagnosis of herpes can be done in specialized laboratories with appropriate equipment and reagents. It includes the following methods: identification of antigens of the virus (explores the scraping of fresh bubbles), viral seeding (virus isolation from cell culture), PCR method (allows you to explore not only the material resulting from the scraping, but also other biological fluid is cerebrospinal fluid, blood), the detection of antibodies to the herpes virus.
