Chlamydia and Gonorrhea
Chlamydia (Chlamydia trachomatis) is the most
commonly reported sexually transmitted infection in the
United States; with an estimated 3-4 million new infections
occurring each year.
Gonorrhea (Neisseria gonorrheae) is another
common sexually transmitted infection; approximately 650,000
new cases of gonorrhea occur in the Unites States each year.
Untreated, up to 40% of women with
chlamydia or gonorrhea will develop
pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). PID can lead to
infertility and potentially fatal tubal (ectopic) pregnancy.
