If an old chlamydia infection went unknown/untreated, would it definitely lead to PID and infertility?

Maybe

Chlamydia_infections
Infertility due to damage to the Fallopian tubes and or PID are possible outcomes for Chlamydia. Whether or not it would always happen is unclear. Antibiotics treatment for another problem (bronchitis,sinus infection) might also cure an unknown chlamydia infection, the person might never test positive or know they had it and show up infertile for no known reason.

Is it possible to have had PID caused by a past unknown/untreated chlamydia infection but not know you had PID?

Yes

it can be quite common for women to have evidence of past PID without ever having had symptoms. Unfortunately this is usually discovered when someone is dealing with infertility.

How do integrative doctors treat chlamydia infections?

Umm

Open-uri20120309-10112-vygkan
Hopefully appropriately, using evidence based medicine and ethics. Just what is an "integrative doctor," anyway? Is that code for doesn't prescribe pharmaceuticals? Or code for not a real doctor but is trying hard? It should mean a licensed physician who evaluates every aspect of a patient when they practice their craft.
