Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is almost always a sexually transmitted infection (STI). Chlamydia trachomatis (14–35% of cases) and Neisseria gonorrhoeae (2–3% of cases) have been identified as causative organisms for PID [ ].

reactive arthritis (SARA) (polyarthritis of weight-bearing joints) is more common in men than women with chlamydia. Anxiety and psychological distress has been reported in people with chlamydia. Chlamydia in pregnancy is associated with: Increased risk of premature rupture of membranes, pre-term delivery, and low birth weight in the infant. Increased risk of intra-partum pyrexia and late post partum endometritis. Infections of the eyes, lungs, nasopharynx, and genitals in the neonate, due to exposure (...) is considered uncomplicated when the infection has not ascended to the upper genital tract. Ascending chlamydial infection in women can cause pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). The National Chlamydia Screening Programme recommends annual screening for all sexually active people younger than 25 years of age, or more frequently if they change their partner. Tests for chlamydia are recommended if a sexually active person has the following symptoms and signs: In women: post-coital or intermenstrual bleeding

Prevalence, risk factors and molecular characterization of Chlamydia trachomatis in pregnant women from Córdoba, Argentina: A prospective study. Chlamydia trachomatis causes the most prevalent bacterial Sexual Transmitted Infection. In pregnant women, untreated chlamydial infections are associated with abortions, premature rupture of membranes, postpartum endometritis, low birth weight and transmission to the newborn. In Córdoba, Argentina, there is little knowledge about the prevalence

The risk of bias was generally low, with the quality of most of the studies being high.

128. Vaginal chlorhexidine during labour for preventing maternal and neonatal infections (excluding Group B Streptococcal and HIV). (Abstract)

Vaginal chlorhexidine during labour for preventing maternal and neonatal infections (excluding Group B Streptococcal and HIV). The incidence of chorioamnionitis occurs in between eight and 12 women for every 1000 live births and 96% of cases of chorioamnionitis are due to ascending infection. Following spontaneous vaginal delivery, 1% to 4% of women develop postpartum endometritis. The incidence of neonatal sepsis is 0.5% to 1% of all infants born. Maternal vaginal bacteria are the main agents (...) authors independently assessed trial eligibility and quality, extracted and interpreted the data. A third review author analyzed and interpreted the data. The fourth author also interpreted the data.We included three studies (3012 participants). There was no evidence of an effect of vaginal chlorhexidine during labour in preventing maternal and neonatal infections. Although the data suggest a trend in reducing postpartum endometritis, the difference was not statistically significant (three trials

No serious adverse effects were reported. Drug resistance, duration of mechanical ventilation and duration of admission to NICU/hospital were not reported.
