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! ...Read more

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. ...Read more
