See specialist: If you are a woman you should see an ob/gyn.Because chlamidia although is easy to treat, it already migh t ve caused damage to your reproductive organs leading to infertility. Plus you will need a full std panel as well with a pelvic exam. If you are a man, need also a full std panel and proper treatment.

Chlamydia is common: Chlamydia infections are common and often without any symptoms. If you have been exposed and conditions become favorable, the infection makes its way from the cervix to the uterus and tubes, causing serious infection. Such can lead to infertility. If you practice "high risk sexual behavior" tell your doctor to check for chlamydia (gonorrhea should also be checked also; it carries greater risk.
