Tubes may be damaged: Chlamydia infections don't always cause infertility, but can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease which can cause damage to the fallopian tubes and even damage to the ovaries as well. This can increase the chances of difficulty getting pregnant, tubal pregnancy (ectopic pregnancy) or low egg supply (diminished ovarian reserve). Get treated asap and see a fertility md if you are trying to conceive.
