Yes: It could cause preterm labor so get treated right away. Your partner should be treated. Do not engage in unprotected sexual activity.

GC: Yes, if the infection caused damage to the fallopian tubes (the tubes that bring the eggs from the ovaries to the uterus) then it is possible that you may experience problems with miscarriage.
