This sexually transmitted parasite does not produce symptoms that you can see or feel. If left untreated, chlamydia can turn into Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (also seen as PID) that will block the fallopian tubes as a result of scar tissue. When men have chlamydia, they can suffer from inflammation of the testes as well as the tubes around them.

Doctors tend to take cervical swabs and/or blood antibody tests when testing for chlamydia


Treatment for Chlamydia itself is in the form of very strong antibiotics.

Tubal damage is detected during either a laparoscopy or a hysterosalpingogram. Tuboplasty may be appropriate to correct the damage.
