Chlamydia trachomatis (CT), Trichomonas vaginalis, Neisseria gonorrheoae and other viruses are common causes for women urogenital discharges. The efficacy of laboratory methods and samples were aimed to reach final accurate, rapid method for diagnosis of CT.A total of 185 women urogenital samples tripled number from endocervical swabs, high vaginal swab(HVS) and urine deposits were collected from women in child bearing ages, involving 166 with urogenital discharges and the rest number as control (without discharge). For each specimen direct wet preparation, gram staining, rapid lateral immune-chromatography assay (RILCA) and ELISA technique were applied. The all rate of urogenital infection was 33, 23% Bacterial infection contributes high rate 55.22%, followed by CT 41.96%, fungi 22.23% and 12,58% for Trichomonas vaginalis. Gardnerella vaginalis and Moblincus species are dominant bacteria in HVS versus to CT in endocervical swabs. The rate of CT infection was high in specimen with yellowish discharge, RLICA technique is with efficacy to demonstrate CT than by using direct, gram staining, culturing and ELISA technique. The rate of CT was higher in the second and third period of gestation than in the first period. Young, aged women (15 to 30 years) are highly at risk for CT infection than elderly women. The relationship between women, abortion, parity and CT frequency was not significant. Pelvic inflammatory disease in high correlation to CT infection. Cervical erosion, vaginal itching, fever and dyspareunia are a dominant feature during women CT infection. Conclusions: The rate of STD was highest among young aged women particularly CT infection. Endocervical swabs and RLICA technique have had high efficacy in demonstrating CT than other lab methods. The relationship between genital discharge color gestational periods and CT existence was significant. Whereas it was negative in regard number of women abortions and women parity. This study was preliminary study that required further studies to a sure real rate of CT and other STD.
