Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection (STI). This infection spreads through sexual contact.
This condition is not difficult to treat. However, if left untreated, chlamydia can lead to more serious health problems, including pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID can increase your risk of being unable to have children. In pregnant women, untreated chlamydia can cause serious complications during pregnancy or health problems for the baby after delivery.
This condition is caused by a bacteria called Chlamydia trachomatis. The bacteria are spread from an infected partner during sexual activity. Chlamydia can spread through contact with the genitals, mouth, or rectum.
In some cases, there are no symptoms, especially early in the infection.
This condition is treated with antibiotic medicines.
