In the majority of people, Chlamydia does not show any symptoms. If symptoms do appear after infection, it usually takes a few weeks for them to appear. Chlamydia symptoms may include the following:

What happens if I don’t get treated for chlamydia? In women, untreated chlamydia can spread to the uterus and fallopian tubes and cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID may cause permanent damage to the reproductive system, including long-term pelvic pain, inability to get pregnant, and ectopic pregnancy. In men, the infection may spread to the tube that carries sperm from the testicles, causing pain and fever. In some very rare instances, Chlamydia can prevent a man from being able to have children.
