Maybe: This germ can strike the sensitive areas within your fallopian tubes and make your chance of natural conception less likely. Your obgyn can do some testing to see if these have been effected. If they have, and you still have healthy ovaries, you could have kids using the assistance of ivf to bypass the problem.

Maybe: There is ~ 15% incidence of tubal damage with an asymptomatic episode of chlamydia.
