Chlamydia most often causes no symptoms. In females, 80-90% have no signs or symptoms; in men, at least 50% are asymptomatic.

For the minority that does have symptoms, they may include vaginal or urethral discharge, painful urination, or pain in the scrotum. The discharge and urination may also be caused by gonorrhea, trichomoniasis, mycoplasma, and other non-sexually transmitted infections.
