Chlamydia , women!: There is a higher rate of infection in single females than males! chlamydia is found in 25-28% of single females, and is two-three percent lower in males. This is a national tragedy, because of long term consequences! treatment is simple, but partner's must be simultaneously treated. Best advice; fewer sexual partners: know your partner; and always have the male wear a condom.
