I just got my test results and I got chlamydia that i'm currently being treated for. I will not be trying to get pregnant for maybe another year and I was wondering if I can get some replies to see for how long someone has had it and were you able to get pregnant?

I've had it for about 2 years. I know everyone's body is different, but anyone knows how long it takes on average to get a significant damage done that would lead to infertility (assuming that by now it turned into pid). Thank you very much for taking time to answer!

About a year ago I learned I had chlamydia and took the tablets and got rid of it but I must have had it for around six years without knowing and I have been on infertility treatments for years. Tomorrow morning I am actually about to have my first two embryos transfered from my first ivf cycle. If you have trouble conceiving for twelve months get help right away - I waited and it's taken me seven years to get this far. Hope all goes well.

Thank you! And best of luck to you!
Btw, can you tell me how you've been treated for chlamydia? My doc gave only 4 pills to take at once in 1 day and come back for a follow up test in 3 weeks. Doesn't sound like enough... Or should it be? Thanks!

I had to wait 7days b4 having sex this was back when i was 16 im now about to be 23. And im not pregnant yet. Idk wat to do but i've also been on and off birth control depo shots and pills. Could this be the reason why?

I was given a suspended antibiotic. I had to mix the antibiotic into a glass of water and drink it. Only one dose. Since Chlamydia is very sensitive to the antibiotics used to treat it, you only need one dose!

Hi spybg, I am in exactly the same situation as you, I cannot be sure how long I had chlymidia for as was in relationship for 2 and a half years..But am absolutely petrified about being infertile..Can I ask you what your symptoms were? As some ppl don't have any...Also I was tested for pid and I didn't have it, so you may not have had it either. I know somebody who had chlymidia and then went on to have a baby, and there is I think 75% chance we will be ok, but it depends on how long you have had it I think..I wish there was a test that could tell you how severe the damage was..I know there is a test called a laperoscomy whereby they insert a dye into your fallopian tubes to see if there is a blockage, but they only do this after you have been trying to conceive for 12 months or longer. Were your (or anybody in a similar sit) periods normal? Cos my were, and stil are very iregular, but i'm not sure whether that is related to the sti or bcos I was on the pill for 5 years...If there is anyone out there who has had chlymidia or knows someobody who has and gone on to have a baby please say as I am feeling so very worried at the moment, my only dream in life is to have baby.

I'm called Jasmine and I've had Clap for aaround four month at maxx, I'm only 17 n i h8 to think of the consiquences that it is having on my body. The hospital say they cannot check my body to see if its having any effects on my body, and they say they cannot check my fertility untill i am ready to concieve which is totally unfair. Could anyone let me know if they have suffered from it for longer than this and they have still managed to make a baby?

i had it for about 1-2 years not sure which bf.. what's worse is I only had sex 3 times TOTAL(in my entire life) and caught it with a condom.

I'm terrified that it scarred me up.. not sure if it did or not. My periods are pretty regular actually. Which makes me feel good since the ones that said they were having trouble conceiving were having irregular periods.

My symptoms well.. I'm not sure if I had any since I had a really bad UTI at the sametime I had it...it's what got be scared and got me checked out after I found out my ex bf was a hooch.

I also have a inverted uterus so I'm having difficulty conceiving because of that but am hoping with my next doctor visit I can get some tests done.

hi, i am 22 yrs. old i think i had chlamydia for bout 6 months and the crazy part about my story is i tested postive for it but .. my partner tested negative! how does that happen? than go back for a follow and tested positive again. I was very very upset. could they have messed his test up? I feel if its such a big problem in the world, u should be able to go to the store and by something to knock it out. it should be put it vitamins or something. In my opinion, the steps to treatment for this virus is not lowering the percentage of people who catch it and its ruining peoples lifes forever.To me its just too serious to be shrugged off.

Chlamydia is not a virus, its a bacteria. The reason they do not have antibiotics available in stores, or in vitamins is so they can fight resistance of the bacteria. The reason more antibiotic resistant bacteria is out there is because of people over using or misusing antibiotics. People can not abuse the antibiotics if doctors only give them to people who test positive for the infection. If Chlamydia becomes resistant to the antibiotics used to treat it, then were down a creek without a paddle and there will be an overwhelming increase of Chlamydia cases all over the world and more lives ruined.

Also, there is always potential to mess up tests. But a lot of what i see are false positives rather than false negatives. DId you actually see your partners tests?

CHLAMYDIA, BLOATING, LATE PERIOD, FISSURE
I'm hoping someone could help me please! I had Chlamydia and I noticed symptoms 4 weeks ago and on the 1st week of symptoms, I started my treatment. My husband did also. But now I haven't gotten my period for 3 weeks and I have severe bloating and some pain from time to time...I also had a fissure which is healing now, thank God. Does anyone know what this is?

sometimes Chlamydia causes Pelvic inflammatory disease(PID). If you have pelvic pain, you should probably get that checked, as it could be life threatening and could seriously increase risk of infertility.

Hi cmehat.

I contracted chlamydis goodness knows when but I'm having the same symptons as you are. Really bloated and really bad cramps, usually in the evening. I dont know whethere this is PID or the pills havent worked or what?
So I'm considering going back to the clinic, unless anyone has an answer, just to double check. I might ask to be tested for PID as well.
If you hear anything please could you let me know?
Cheers

positive for chlamydia with no symptoms along with pcos
Im 23 years old I went to the gyno to get tested for infertility because my husband and i have been ttc for 3 years and no luck. the did the swabs and it came back positive for chlamydia. I have no idea how long I have had it and I never had symptoms. I have struggled with irregular periods and weight gain for the last 5 years so they did blood work also. The blood worked shows I have poly cystic ovarian syndrome which means I dont ovulate. they are starting me on clomid next month for that. but i am so scared that i still may never be able to have children because not only does chlamydia cause infertility so does pcos. double whammy. does anyone else have the same problem?

i found out i had clymidia about a month ago me and my partner both got tested i was positive he was clear. i got it from my ex who got me pregnant over a year ago. i had tests done at hospital when i lost the baby at 8 weeks gone, and they were clear. the pregnancy hid the clymidia. i have told my ex and he doesnt care as his got another child now, im not worried about him im worried about his gf and the baby. but anyways like i said my new partner was clear and i had it, we have both been treated now and have to get tested again in 3 weeks time from now, we have been trying for a baby but obv this is the reason i wasnt falling. i have been having irregular periods for about 2 months b4 i found out i had the std. i have had blood tests and am waiting for the results. the lady that told me i had the std said it was a very mild case of it, i have been late for my periods and then about after a week late i come on. so im wondering was i pregnant and just loosing them coz of the std or is it something more like i cant have kids, i am waiting for the results and were hopin they come back good.
