Chlamydia can be there in woman from 5 to 10 years, and if left untreated, 40% of women will develop pelvic inflammatory disease,

If it is attained by sexual transmission, the symptoms may show up in 1 to 3 weeks if the infection is severe.

It can be treated, and cured. Please consult the gynaec to get treated as early as possible.
