Can Chlamydia cause infertility forever?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 05/30/2017

If untreated, Chlamydia can affect a woman's fertility in many ways. If the infection spreads from the vaginal canal into the uterus, it can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) and the endometrium to swell and scar. In most severe situations, this scar tissue can prevent implantation or cause an ectopic pregnancy.
