Thanks for your query.

 It is true that Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted disease in US.  It gets easily spread because it often causes no symptoms and may be unknowingly passed to sexual partners. You would be disheartened to know that 75% of infections in women and 50% in men are with symptoms.
