Chlamydia – testing, testing...

Chlamydia is the UK's most common sexually transmitted disease, with one out of every 14 young people directly affected by it every year. Unlike other STIs, Chlamydia is easy to pass on or pick up unwittingly because it's often impossible to tell if you or your sexual partner has been infected. The disease has no noticeable symptoms in the early stages.

Chlamydia - Why can it affect women so badly?

The reason why chlamydia can have such a devastating effect in women is because it can travel to the delicate reproductive organs. The uterus, or womb, is shaped like an upside-down pear with its lower end narrowing to form a protective opening called the cervix. In teenage girls the cervix is still not fully developed and matured and is lined with fresh tissue that is easily infected by chlamydia
