Answer

Chlamydial infection is one of the leading causes of infertility in women. It is also a leading cause of PID. PID is a serious disease that often requires hospitalization for inpatient care, including intravenous (IV) antibiotics, testing to rule out tubo-ovarian abscess, and intensive counseling on the complications of recurrent infections.
