Incidence of Chlamydia trachomatis in patients with sterility


Incidence of Chlamydia trachomatis in patients with sterility



Investigacion Clinica 31(2): 91-104

PMID: 2101638

Eighty six women were studied at the Hospital Chiquinquirá in order to determine the role of Chlamydia Trachomatis in infertility. Endocervical samples were taken in 45 infertile women (IG) who concurred to our Gynecologic Endocrinology Clinic and in 41 (CG) who sought medical attention at our General Gynecology Clinic for different reasons. The Chlamydiazyme Test (CT) was performed in all of them. We obtained 12 positive Chlamydiazymes (13.95%), four of them were in the IG (8.89%) and 8 (19.5%) in the CG; this was not statistically significant (p = 0.3). We also found no correlations when positive tests were correlated with sterility (p = 0.5, tube pathology history (p = 0.2), HSG (p = 0.2) and laparoscopic findings (p = 0.1). We did not find an increase in the occurrence of CT in our infertile women as reported by other authors therefore its significance in our study group at this time is uncertain.
