Silent STD causes infertility

I know that an untreated chlamydia infection can result in infertility, but many young women do not know. In today's Wall Street Journal, consumer health writer, Melinda Beck, addresses the facts about chlamydia infections and the challenges to getting young women screened routinely. In developing the article Melinda interviewed several members of the National Chlamydia Coalition (www.prevent.org/NCC) which is convened and operated by Partnership for Prevention, in conjunction with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
