Different: Chlamydia infects the cervix, and can sometimes go up into the uterus to infect the uterus and the tubes (that is pid). There may be no symptoms. Vaginitis is the general term for a vaginal infection - chlamydia doesn't infect the vagina. Bacterial vaginosis is a common vaginitis, as is yeast. With vaginitis there is vaginal itch, irritation, discharge or odor.
