STDs happen more than you think. To single people, people in relationships, and even people who have only had one partner. Often they don’t have symptoms. That’s why more and more people are finding out for themselves by getting tested. Get tested regularly. It is the only way to know for sure

Learn about the most common STD: Chlamydia
Infection with Chlamydia trachomatis is a significant women’s health problem. In fact, 1 in 20 young women has Chlamydia.
Chlamydia is spread by having sex with someone who has chlamydia. Talk to your doctor to understand what STD tests you should be getting and how often. If an STD is detected early on, chances of successful treatment are greater.
No symptoms is no excuse. Get tested.
Chlamydia is a disease with “silent” symptoms. In fact, 80% of women who have chlamydia don’t have symptoms. Don’t wait to feel something unusual to test for an STD.
Treat and get on with your life
Chlamydia is easily treated and cured with antibiotics. If you are being treated, your partner(s) should be tested and treated too. Do not share the antibiotics with others. You need to finish the full course to be cured.
Chlamydia can stay in your body if it is not treated. It can sometimes spread into your reproductive organs and cause serious issues, making it difficult or impossible to get pregnant or cause a potentially fatal ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy that occurs outside the womb).
