There is some evidence that chlamydia infection during pregnancy could play a role in miscarriage. In 2011, a Swiss study of blood, vaginal fluid, and placenta samples from women found a higher rate of signs of chlamydia in women who miscarried compared to women who. The likelihood of a miscarriage being linked to chlamydia infection is extremely small. Most miscarriages are due to problems with the chromosomes of the fetus, and will have nothing to do with an infection.

It is therefore important that women do not link their miscarriage with past chlamydia infection, and blame themselves for the pregnancy loss. The inability to detect immunoglobulin (Ig) M or to isolate C. trachomatis from any of these seropositive patients might suggest that Chlamydia spp. are not directly associated with miscarriage (9,12). The CDC suggests that pregnant women who are treated for chlamydia infection should be retested at 3 weeks and 3 months post-treatment since reinfection is somewhat common.

Rarely, genital chlamydial infection can cause arthritis accompanied by skin lesions and inflammation of the eye and urethra, a condition known as Reiter’s syndrome. WebMD.

In this condition, the cervical muscles are weaker and are not able to hold the fetus. It may occur as a result of a previous injury to the cervix such as after a surgery. Due to the weakness of muscles, the cervix may open too early often during the second trimester of pregnancy resulting in miscarriage.

Chlamydia does not usually cause symptoms unless it spreads to the upper genital tract; such spread, however, may cause miscarriage (see PREGNANCY AND LABOUR) or ECTOPIC PREGNANCY.
