Chlamydia is an extremely common sexually transmitted disease that can affect people of all ages. It mostly affects young adults aged 16-25. Some women who have chlamydia may not have any symptoms but will still transmit the disease.
Although it can be treated easily with medicine, it must be taken seriously. Having chlamydia increases your chances of contracting HIV. This is because chlamydia causes sores and lesions which make it easier for HIV to enter the body. Not treating chlamydia can also cause fertility issues in the future.
