Chlamydia should not directly cause a delay in your period, although it can block the fallopian tubes and even cause infertility, and increases the risk of ectopic pregnancy. The heaviness of the period can be affected, although this is rare. An indirect delay in the period is possible if you have Chlamydia. This is because stress and anxiety can affect the timing of the period. Chlamydia is a sexually transmitted disease caused by the bacteria Chlamydia trachomatis. The disease is the most common sexually transmitted disease in both the United States and the United Kingdom. The highest risk group is those individuals who have multiple sexual partners. Up to 25% of men and 70% of women show no symptoms of the disease. If a person has symptoms these will normally be a burning sensation when urinating, as well as a rectal pain or discharge. Men may also suffer from a pain in the testicles and women may have vaginal discharge. Because of the high percentage of women show no symptoms, it is vital that all women are regularly screened for Chlamydia to ascertain whether they have it or not. Women can provide a urine test for Chlamydia diagnosis, as well providing a sample of cervical secretions. The infection in women can lead to inflammation of the cervix, and if the woman is pregnant when Chlamydia is present the newborn baby can contract pneumonia or suffer from Chlamydia-related conjunctivitis, which affects the eyes. Chlamydia can be treated with antibiotics, some of which are safe for pregnant women. Gonorrhea is often associated with Chlamydia as it is common to suffer from both diseases at the same time, so this is normally treated for in conjunction with Chlamydia. The best way to avoid contracting the infection is to take part in a mutually monogamous sexual relationship.

Chlamydia is a bacteria that is spread through sex. Its symptoms in women are
  1. Discharge from vagina
  2. Irritations in vagina
  3. Burning sensation after urination
  4. Lower abdominal pain
These bacteria are treated by antibiotics. If chlamydia are not treated then pelvic inflammatory disease is expected. This condition can cause infertility. It can also cause bleeding between 2 menstrual periods or 2 periods in month. This is only way when chlamydia affects the periods.

Well, normally Chlamydia does not affect the periods. However it is said to block the fallopian tubes and affect the reproductive system and can even cause infertility. However, there has not been any scientific discovery about Chlamydia causing period delay.

According to my knowledge Chlamydia does not delay a women's periods. It is said to block the fallopian tubes and disturb the reproductive system and in extreme cases leave the infected person infertile. However, it does not effect the periods.
