Chlamydia


Chlamydia infections are very common and 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). As you have had chlamydia 'a few times' I recommend that you see a Reproductive Endocrinologist now that you are trying to conceive. If you have significant problems with your tubes or ovaries it is better to know sooner rather than later, but everything may still be OK as well, which is also good to know. Best wishes.

Was it PID or not?


Not all women with chlamydia or gonorrhea infections get damage to the tubes; did the infection cause Pelvic Inflammatory Disease or PID? If you had PID, especially if you were hospitalized, it's not unreasonable to see an OB or Reproductive Endocrinology doc for a Hysterosalpingogram (HSG) test to check for blocked tubes. If not & you're 26 try for 6 months first. Ectopic risk could be 5-10%

Std like chlamydia can cause infection of the tubes and cause blockage. However, this doesn't happen in every woman who gets chlamydia so you may be able to get pregnant.

Chlamydia can cause a variety of problems with the female genital tract. It can scar the fallopian tubes & interfere with establishment of a pregnancy. However,treatment after early detection may preserve these structures. Work with your health care provider to find your best options.

Usually yes. If you have chlamydia you and your partner should be treated. Most people can get pregnant after having chlamydia, but some patients have tubal infertility after chlamydial infection.

A history of chlamydia infection should not prevent pregnancy unless it spread to the tubes & caused abcesses or scarring. Make sure you call your Doc ASAP when pregnant if you have any signs of an ectopic or tubal pregnancy (bleeding, pain, positive test). Take your folic acid & good luck to you.
