Dr. Michael Murray answered

Variable: All chlamydia infections, male or female, should be treated immediately with antibiotics. Some women may harbor chlamydia in the cervix and pass it on to their partners without the bacteria causing infertility. Alternatively, some women may have the infection for only one day before it infects, scars and permanently blocks the fallopian tubes.
