I was treated for chlamydia about three months ago. I had only had it for a couple weeks. My husband and I both got treated but now I am not getting pregnant. Could someone please tell me what this could mean.

Hi,
Welcome to ehealthforum,
The infection can recur if your partner was not treated simultaneously. If left alone or if not treated early (if the infection was detected late), it can result in PID and cause infertility problems. If you are not being successful with your pregnancy plans, you should consider visiting your doctor/gynecologist for repeat evaluation to rule out infection and also go ahead with getting infertility work-up done for you and your partner to see if there are any underlying causes for the infertility/inability to conceive. Treatment as needed (based on examination and investigations results) would be started to help you get pregnant. If infective cause is detected, get your partner also treated simultaneously to prevent chances of re-infection. Drink plenty of water. Take adequate rest. Avoid vaginal douching, use of harsh soap or perfumes in the area. Use loose cotton undergarments and avoid tight fitting clothes. Be in regular monitoring and follow-up with your treating doctor/gynecologist and report any new/abnormal symptoms immediately.
Take care.
