I had chlamydia I year ago. I am trying to get pregnant and nothing. I did not have chlamydia long maybe 2 months and I have read that it can make you infertile. Can it make you infertile if you had it for 1 month and a half to 2 months???

Yes, but it can be cured. You don't have to worry about.

Doesnt it cause scarring and such so that it makes it hard to conceive.

My cousin is trying with no luck and she had a pid (pelvic inflammatory disease) caused by clamydia and her doc said she may have trouble conceiving in the future. I dont think she had it long but u never can tell with something like that. Anyway she got it treated they even did a laporascopy (spelt wrong) where they insert a camera into her belly button and then make her stomach large by inflating it with gas then they have a look around and they didnt find anything.

How much do u know about infertility from what ur doc told u about the disease.

From someone who cant wait to have a jelly bean all of their own

p.S. No one thinks ur a slut, sometimes ppl arent who they pretend to be

Having Trouble Concieveing
Doctors say not to worry unless you been trying at least two years. And haven't you ever realized that it's seems like it's only people who aren't trying that get pregnant, when your trying you stress about it and it may take you longer, and also if you were on bc that can sometime take a while to get out of your system. Ps...Make sure your hubby is not wearing tight undies or pants as that will also reduce chances.

Chlamydia can become pelvic inflammatory disease if left too long and that causes scarring/infertility.I don't think you would of caused any damage if you only had it for 2 years.I had it for 5 years and was damaged.Good luck with conceiving.

some women have no symptoms, and dont know they have it until their partner does. Your best bet is to see a doctor and get tested

I recently found that I have chlamydia I first found out 1 year ago with the same partner when we first got together, neither of us have been with anyone else so the anti-biotics mustn't have worked and now with me having it for a year I'm scared I might not be able to get pregnant!!!

chlamydia, it's self does not cause you to be infertile.... It is the PID that causes the infertility!! PID results in scaring and can damage the little hairs that push the egg along!! If you have got PID then trust me.. You would know about it as the pain is terrible!! You can determine your chances of concieving by having a simple dye test carried out!!

chyamidia does not make you infertile there is a slight chance and its not always the girl who cant get pregnant its most of the time the guy so dont worry ladies it might not be you and dont worry about not be fertile becuase of cylamidia if u have it for 5 to 10 yrs then it will do some damage trust me i been with my boyfriend for 3 yrs and i had got clymidia from my ex and i guess i had it for 3 yrs ann beetween them three yrs i ahd 3 kids so dont always believe what u here

Please Help Me
My boyfriend of nine months (mutually monogamous I think) just found out and was treated for chlamydia. I have not had sex with anyone else since November and I've been showing no symptoms. Being in the military we get tested regularly and my test from last month came up negative except for a possible UTI which nothing ever came of that. Could I have had chlamydia for that long with out knowing even with tests saying I didn't? Or could my monogamous relationship have been a lie this whole time?

I received a call today from my obgyn and said that I tested positive. I am 20 (will be 21 soon) I have only ever "been with" my now husband . we have been together for almost 5 years and we have been having sex for about 4 years. he swears he ha been totally faithful since we started dating and I have had no symtoms neither has my husband. has anyone ever had a false positive on a test like this? and if I have had it for 4-5 years will I still be able to have kids in the future. I just don't know what to think , either my husband of almost 3 years has cheated on me or I have had this std for a long time Sad
