Abstract: 

Background: The aim of this study was to evaluate the incidence of CT in miscarriage.
Methods: A questionnaire containing some demographic information and clinical features related to the infection was completed for each woman who had at least one abortion and attended Fertility and Infertility Center in Isfahan. Selftaken vaginal swabs were collected using sterile cotton swap from 84 women.
Results: Out of 84 samples, 14 were excluded due to antibiotic consumption or inadequate swab quality. All the remaining samples (70) were analyzed by plasmid primers. Only one sample (1.43%) showed positivity for CT infection.
Conclusion: The reason for low incidence of CT in these patients could be not only usage of abundant antibiotics but also limitation of sexual partners in comparison to the West. It should be noted that moral, social and religious factors in our society could have resulted in this low chlamydial infection rate among the normal population in contrast to subjects who have multiple sexual partners. However, a larger sample size in future studies will provide data that are more precise.
