Chlamydia: I suggest that you have a hsg (x-ray test to evaluate the patency of the fallopian tubes). A risk of having chlamydia is tubal scaring, so tht sperm cannot reach the egg.

Pregnancy (Definition)

When your due date arrives, you will be more than ready to have your baby! Most women deliver the baby somewhere between 37 and 42 weeks. According to the American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, only 5% of babies arrive on the exact due date.

If I had chlamydia in my ovari but its already cured can I get pregnut or not?

If I had chlamydia in my ovari but its already cured can I get pregnut or not?

Not sure: Chlamydial infections cause infertility in 20% of women. The cause is tubal blockage. There are two ways of answering this question, 1st and hsg (dye test) is done in radiology to look at the tubes. 2nd is laparoscopy, surgery requiring general anesthesia which is more invasive, but is a better test.

How can I get prengut I had chlamydia and im trying to get pregnut and I don't get I've been tryin for 5mnths?

Check with a GYN: Usually interventions for infertility are not considered until 6 months to a year of regular, unprotected sex. Given your history, seeing a gynecologist to check you out would be a good idea to start that way you know if you are ovulating, and when.

Girlfriend had chlamydia 2 times she's stressing but isn't true you can still get pregnant after being treated?

Girlfriend had chlamydia 2 times she's stressing but isn't true you can still get pregnant after being treated?

Yes: Why on EARTH is this girl having unprotected sex? Chlamydia can ruin your fertility for the rest of your life. If she wants to avoid pregnancy she needs to be on a proper birth control. Can you still get pregnant? Sure, but your risk of having an ectopic pregnancy, which is life threatening, goes WAY up. Be a good friend, and get her to use condoms each time, all the time!

I hate chlamydia Gf had it twice not sure how long she had it but treated it can girls still get pregnant after that if treated or no?

Absolutely!: Absolutely girls can get pregnant after having chlamydia. However, the infection can cause inflammation and scarring in the Fallopian tubes which can impair a woman's later fertility. Use condoms and thanks for trusting Healthtap!

Yes: 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.

I had chlamydia and cured it about 3 years ago can I still get pregnant?

I had chlamydia and cured it about 3 years ago can I still get pregnant?

Yes: 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.

Partner and I were both treated for chlamydia and had protected sex 24 hours after. Am I still at risk and should I get another treatment?

Not likely: If you are sure that you both took your meds and you used a condom, you are likely fine. But if unsure, you can always get a follow up test.

I just started seeing someone and she told me that about a year ago she was diagnosed with chlamydia and received treatment. Is still possible to get?

Be aware: Some people have no symptoms with various STD's. If this person had chlamydia and was treated, that episode was likely cured, but the unprotected sex that led to it suggests it may have happened again.

I had chlamydia twice first time was 2012 not sure how long I had it an 2nd time was for 2 months but I got them both treated can I still get pregnant?

I had chlamydia twice first time was 2012 not sure how long I had it an 2nd time was for 2 months but I got them both treated can I still get pregnant?

Probably no problem: Chlamydia can cause infertility due to blocked Fallopian tubes, sometimes with no symptoms of abdominal pain etc. And repeat infections increase the risk. OTOH, throughout human history, long before chlamydia was discovered, many women were infected, often repeatedly -- and the human race had no trouble reproducing itself. In other words, the chance of a problem is low. No worries!

After you get a chlamydia shot can you still pass it on?

After you get a chlamydia shot can you still pass it on?

Usually not: Chlamydia infections are often treated by oral antibiotics. If a patient got a shot of antibiotics to get rid of a chlamydia infection, then he is likely cured, after a few days. Cure rates are never 100%, so the patient may want to be rechecked by his doctor. Also, every person the patient had contagious contact with would have to be treated so that the patient doesn't catch it back again.

I am always safe, should I still get tested for chlamydia?

Exposure = get test: The only safe sex is where partners who never had outside exposures hook up and never stray. Chlamydia can stay dormant in a male or female genital tract for months without symptoms and pass with any contact.

Greetings. After taking the two red pills for chlamydia my symptoms still appear after two weeks. Why is this and when should I go get more pills?

Get rechecked: For all STDs. If your red pills were Zithromax (??) you would need 2 500mg tablets or 4 250mg tablets as a single oral dose. If you are still symptomatic, call your GYN for re-testing
