Sexually transmitted diseases are not something that most teens want to talk about, but they need to know about it because they are, unfortunately, at the greatest risk. In fact, the greatest risk for chlamydia is in teenage and young adult women. They actually have a great risk of getting this sexually transmitted disease. One of the problems is it can affect the ability to have children. It can affect fertility because if there is scarring of the tubes that actually transmit the egg, that exactly would be the reason why it can’t become fertilized.
