Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted infection (STI) caused by the bacterium Chlamydia trachomatis. It is one of the most common STIs in the United States and affects both men and women. Chlamydia is particularly prevalent among young adults, especially those aged 15-24 years.

The infection is often asymptomatic, meaning that many people who have chlamydia do not experience any symptoms. However, when symptoms do occur, they may include discharge from the genitals, pain or burning during urination, and/or pain during intercourse. If left untreated, chlamydia can lead to serious health complications, including pelvic inflammatory disease in women, which can cause infertility and chronic pelvic pain. It can also lead to epididymitis in men, which can cause infertility.
