Evaluating Risk Factors: Chlamydia

Evaluating your likely current (and near future) state of health means taking into account the risk factors — such as chlamydia — that affect you.   Our medical diagnosis tool, The Analyst™, identifies major risk factors by asking the right questions.

The Diagnostic Process

Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either history of chlamydia or chlamydia, The Analyst™ will use differential diagnosis to consider possibilities such as:
Cervical Cancer

In a five year follow-up study, women whose blood had shown signs of infection with any type of chlamydia were about 212 times more likely to develop cervical cancer, compared with those who had not had signs of infection.  Women with one particular subtype of chlamydia in their blood (serotype G) were 6 times more likely to develop cervical cancer, and several other subtypes were linked to risks 3 to 4 times that of uninfected women.

Female Infertility

As many as 40% of women with untreated chlamydia will develop pelvic inflammatory disease (PID).  Undiagnosed PID caused by chlamydia is common, resulting in a 20% infertility rate.
