Welcome to ehealthforum.
The Chlamydia infection can be treated completely. After the infection is completely gone it is possible to get pregnant.
While being on treatment make sure your partner is also treated simultaneously to prevent re-infection.
Report to your gynecologist and get other tests also done to make sure there are no other infections.
Take care.
