Chlamydia and gonorrhea are both sexually transmitted infections. They are fairly easy to pass from one person to the next, which makes new cases of them common. It is also common for them to appear in pregnant women. If a pregnant woman contracts either of these infections, treatment is crucial because they can be passed to the baby.

Chlamydia begins appearing one to three weeks after the person becomes infected. It usually will cause a burning sensation while the woman is urinating. A discharge is also common as well as pain in the lower abdomen. Women may notice that intercourse is painful after developing chlamydia.
