Chlamydia is the most commonly reported STD but few young women get tested for it.

Just 38% of women ages 15 to 25 were reportedly screened for Chlamydia in 2010, even though the CDC estimates there were 1.3 million new cases that year.

Some people with Chlamydia show no symptoms.

If left untreated, it can cause chronic pain, infertility and pregnancy complications.
