Chlamydia for years?

I've been reading the posts about chlamydia. If we can't have it for three or four years, for example, without knowing it, how is it that it causes PID and infertility? Wouldn't it need to be around for years to cause these complications? Thanks!

Hi PID is an inflamatory disease contracted when things like Gono and chlamydia work their way into the fertily areas and can cause pid in a few months or so. If your concerned have some tests done like a swab of the cervix area and the urethra.
