Chlamydia: Latest Facts, Symptoms, Treatments, and Complications

Complications

Failure to treat chlamydia promptly and properly increases your risk of getting other STIs.

In men, it can lead to epididymitis (inflammation of the epididymis), a condition that can result in sterility in rare cases. The infection can also produce prostatitis and urethritis.

Women with untreated chlamydia can develop pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). They can also experience inflammation of both the womb and the fallopian tubes.

Pregnant women with the infection can pass it on to the babies in their womb. They may experience premature birth or abortion.

This “silent epidemic” should not be handled lightly. It can cause considerable damage when not treated early and suitably.
