Summary

When chlamydia and gonorrhea are untreated, they can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). Many female adolescents and young women have chlamydia or gonorrhea, which means they’re at higher risk for PID. PID can be painful, and it can cause ectopic pregnancy and infertility. Condom use, screening, and early treatment of chlamydia and gonorrhea can help prevent PID in female adolescents and young women.
