Chlamydia Infertility

Chlamydia is a disease transmitted through oral, vaginal or anal sex.. This infection is caused by the bacteria called Chlamydia trachomatis. It can also be transmitted by the mother to her baby during childbirth.

If the disease remains untreated for a long time, it can spread to the fallopian tubes, resulting in a blockage. Scarring of the fallopian tubes can occur, which can cause infertility.

Chlamydia and Infertility:

If the infection is left untreated, it has the ability to travel through the cervix and to the fallopian tubes, causing a  condition called Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID). The symptoms of this condition include fever, pain during sex and abdominal pain.

If PID is left untreated, then it can result in blockage of the fallopian tubes which results in infertility. In other cases, the infection moves up in the reproductive tract and results in the swelling of the uterus, fallopian tubes and the surrounding area. This part can be filled with pus and cause inflammation.

Sometimes,  a scar develops around the fallopian tubes, which causes problems during ovulation.
