How common is it for a woman not to show symptoms of chlamydia infection?

Very common. A significant majority of women with chlamydia, a sexually transmitted infection, have no symptoms initially. Untreated though, chlamydia infections can lead to a serious condition called pelvic inflammatory disease, which can also cause infertility and increase the chance of ectopic pregnancy.
