If : If you had chlamydia and were treated then you are odds of it still being present are fairly low, unless you were reinfected. If you go into labor prior to the results being available, your doctor may opt to give you a one time dose of Azithromycin to be safe. I highly doubt that a c-section will be done for this reason alone. I am sure your doctor has a safe protocol for this type of situation. Best of luck on your upcoming delivery!
