143 men who were infected with Chlamydia and another urinary tract infection and had not managed to father children, their sperms were analyzed by scientists. In these men's sperm, the degree of DNA fragmentation was three times higher than in healthy men's, it was found by them. A higher number of sperms with defective shapes were had by them as well as a low sperm count. Infected men's sperm had poor motility (they did not swim well), this was found by them also.

 13% of the infertile men managed to get their partners pregnant during this time in which their sperm DNA fragmentation was improved to 36%, it was found by the researchers for four months’ treating 95 of the infertile men with antibiotics. 86% of the couples became pregnant by the end of the treatment.

The bacteria that causes Chlamydia infection was carried by approximately 10% of UK people aged 18-25 which as estimated. Several health experts fear the disease is not taken seriously enough though a well-publicized screening program was set up by the National Health Service.
