All About Chlamydia

Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease (STD) that is caused by a bacterial infection. In fact, it is the most common bacterial-related STD in the United States. The disease can be transmitted through vaginal, anal, or oral sex. It is considered a "silent" disease because symptoms are often not present, so a person doesn't know they are infected.
 
The more sexual partners a person has, the greater their risk of becoming infected. In addition, chlamydia can cause serious complications if left untreated. It can cause problems during pregnancy, and the mother can even pass the disease to her baby during delivery.
