Chlamydia is a common sexually transmitted bacterial disease which can damage a woman's reproductive organs. Even though symptoms of chlamydia are usually mild or absent, serious complications that cause irreversible damage, including infertility, can occur before a woman ever recognizes a problem. Chlamydia also affects men.
