No, Chlamydia cannot become HIV because Chlamydia and HIV are two different things.

Chlamydia is a bacteria and HIv is a virus. They are different organisms and bacteria can’t turn into virus. The only common thing they have is that they’re both transmitted sexually.

Chlamydia can cause certain problems if not treated though.
In women, untreated Chlamydia can lead to inflammation of the cervix, which is the entrance to the uterus. It can also block Fallopian tubes that connect ovaries to the uterus and enable released egg to reach the uterus. This could lead to infertility and women.

Complications regarding pregnancy is that Chlamydia could lead to ectopic pregnancy when a fetus doesn’t develop inside the womb but somewhere else; cause pelvic inflammatory disease and chronic infection of the uterus.
In men, untrested Chlamydai leads to epididymitis, an inflammations of the tyube that is connected to the testicle. It stores sperm. This condition besides severe pain can lead to infertility.

Chlamydia can affect eyes and joints and lead to Reiter’s syndrome in both sexes.
The thing is that Chlamydia is easily treated and shouldn’t be left untested. The only problem is that it is often asymptomatic and therefore hard to diagnose.
