What Happens if You Don’t Get Treated for Chlamydia?

Understanding Fertility Problems Relating to Chlamydia

Although chlamydia is a treatable STD and cured with antibiotics, it’s critical to understand how leaving chlamydia untreated can lead to infertility and other serious problems. Here are some facts you need to know.

Symptoms of Chlamydia

Chlamydia does not typically present any symptoms, which in some cases can make it go undetected and untreated. If you are sexually active, having regular screenings can help you get treated as soon as possible. Although not common, some women may experience the following symptoms:

  • Painful urination
  • Vaginal discharge
  • Painful intercourse
  • Unusual bleeding between periods

The Consequences of Leaving Chlamydia Untreated

When not caught and treated early, chlamydia can spread to the uterus and fallopian tubes, which causes pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). Someone with PID may not notice any symptoms, but if PID leads to permanent damage, it could lead to severe pelvic pain, infertility, or ectopic pregnancy. Getting tested for chlamydia can significantly reduce your chances of developing PID.
