and oral sex.

“Many people with Chlamydia exhibit no symptoms of infection and do not know that they are infected” said Dr. Abdul Rao, CEO and Chief Research Officer of the Institute of Women’s Health of North America (IWHNA). “If untreated, Chlamydia infections can cause serious reproductive and other health problems with both short and long-term consequences”.

In untreated women, Chlamydia infection spreads into the uterus or fallopian tubes and results in pelvic inflammatory diseases which can cause permanent damage of these organs and surrounding tissues resulting in chronic pelvic pain, infertility, and ectopic pregnancy. If exposed, women infected with Chlamydia are shown to be five times more likely to become infected with Human Immunodeficiency Virus (HIV). This is particularly disconcerting given the fact that Chlamydia infection can be easily treated with antibiotics if diagnosed in a timely manner.

“As the largest women’s healthcare provider in the State, we are obligated to offer this test free-of-charge to women” said Abdul Sohail Rao, CEO and Chief Research Officer of IWHNA. “Along with HIV counseling, testing and referral services which are available free to both men and women at all our affiliated campuses, this is an attempt on the part of the Institute to create a comprehensive preventative program for STI in both men and women in our State”.
