Common, but silent STD

Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted infection (STI), caused by a bacteria, that plagues sexually active people. It can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease, chronic pelvic pain, ectopic pregnancies and infertility if left untreated. It is difficult to diagnose without tests being taken as it is often a silent infection, but is easily treated with antibiotics.
