Resumen

PENA MANTILLA, Ana Beatriz et al. Damage and Consequences of Chlamydia Trachomatis in Infertile Women. Rev Cubana Obstet Ginecol [online]. 2019, vol.45, n.2, e449.  Epub 01-Jun-2019. ISSN 0138-600X.

Introduction:

Infertility has increased worldwide because of the increase in sexually transmitted infections and pelvic inflammatory disease caused mainly by Chlamydia trachomatis.

Objective:

To describe the relationship between Chlamydia trachomatis and its damages and consequences in infertile women.

Methods:

We studied 552 women with a diagnosis of infertility and we selected a sample of 175, with diagnosis of Chlamydia trachomatis infection.

Results:

The women in the study had high school level. Most of them did not have reproductive organ damage despite suffering from Chlamydia trachomatis infection. However, those who did not have this damage had bilateral tubal obstruction. Cervicitis predominated in those cases in which damage to the cervix was diagnosed.

Conclusions:

Most of the infertile women with Chlamydia trachomatis infection were young adults with a high school level, suffering secondary infertility and with no structural damage to the fallopian tubes and uterine cervix. There is a relationship between Chlamydia trachomatis and the affection to the fallopian tubes and uterine cervix.

Palabras clave : infertility; Chlamydia trachomatis infection; reproductive organs.
