Can chlamydia be prevented?

Chlamydia can be prevented by practicing safe sex, which means using a condom when having sex. Because some people who are infected with chlamydia do not show any symptoms, getting tested for chlamydia regularly if there is a high risk of infection may also help prevent its spread. To prevent chlamydia being passed on to babies during childbirth, doctors usually recommend that pregnant women get tested for chlamydia.
