What is Chlamydia?

Chlamydia is a common STI caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis. It can cause permanent and lasting damage to a woman's reproductive organs (uterus, Fallopian tubes, and ovaries) if left untreated. It is the most frequently reported bacterial STI in the United States. 

Often Chlamydia shows no signs or symptoms, yet can cause irreversible damage.

Chlamydia can affect both men and women at any time regardless of age. It is spread through body fluids during vaginal, oral, or anal sex. Condoms offer about 50% protection against Chlamydia, but even with 100% condom use you can still contract the disease.
