According to the World Health Organization, over one million sexually transmitted infections and diseases are acquired every day throughout the world. Chlamydia is one of the most common sexually transmitted infections. It is caused by a bacteria named chlamydia trachomatis, which is spread by having oral, vaginal, or anal sex with a man or woman who is already infected.
