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.
Have you ever had Chlamydia?
Possible responses:→ Never had it / don't know

In a five year follow-up study, women whose blood had shown signs of infection with any type of chlamydia were about 2 1⁄2 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.
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.
