WHAT IS IT?

Chlamydia is a common STD that can infect both men and women. It can cause serious, permanent damage to a woman’s reproductive system, making it difficult or impossible for her to get pregnant later on. Chlamydia can also cause a potentially fatal ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy that occurs outside the womb). Untreated chlamydia may also increase your chances of getting or giving HIV.

  • Abnormal vaginal discharge
  • Burning sensation when urinating
  • Rectal pain, discharge, and/or bleeding

Males

  • Discharge from their penis
