Call Your Doctor About Chlamydia If:
You are a woman and you experience high fever and other flu-like symptoms, such as chills, backache, weight loss, and diarrhea, along with severe pelvic pain, bleeding after intercourse, severe nausea, or recurring back pain; you may have developed pelvic inflammatory disease, a serious complication of chlamydia that can result in sterility.
You develop any of the symptoms listed above; chlamydia requires urgent medical treatment to avoid serious complications that can lead to sterility, especially in women.
Rarely, genital chlamydial infection can cause arthritis accompanied by skin lesions and inflammation of the eye and urethra, a condition known as Reiter's syndrome.
