Do women usually have successful pregnancies after a chlamydia infection or do you always become infertile if not treated for a long time?

Do women usually have successful pregnancies after a chlamydia infection or do you always become infertile if not treated for a long time?

SOME DO: Chlamydia may enter the female genital tract and cause injury & scaring to the sensitive fallopian tubes or worse. If an infection is detected prior to damage & treated effectively, the problems can be minimized and natural pregnancy can occur. With todays tech a willing couple can harvest eggs, fertalize & implant embryos, bypassing the tubes. Expensive but possible ...Read more

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. Approximately 7% of babies are not delivered by 42 weeks, and when that happens, it is referred to ...Read more

If I had chlamydia for months & preejaculation contacted the labia minora, could I get prego? Does chlamydia prevent pregnancies?

Pregnancy unlikely: Chlamydia does not prevent pregnancy. However, pre-ejaculate fluid on labia is low pregnancy risk, so probably no worrie there. However, it would be a bit unusual to have chlamydia for several months. Why do you suspect it? Have you been diagnosed? Treated? If any doubt about it, get medical care ASAP. ...Read more

Could you tell me what are my chances of being infertile from chlamydia?

Possible for sure: Can't say how likely; chlamydia frequently causes fertility problems in females, but many women escape the problems. If chlamydia causes female infertility it's always from tubal damage; an obg or fertility doc can tell you about an x-ray test ("hsg") for evaluating this. ...Read more

I did an at-home chlamydia test and the result was VERY faint as in barely there, is there a chance that I am not infected?

I did an at-home chlamydia test and the result was VERY faint as in barely there, is there a chance that I am not infected?

Unreliable test: All rapid chlamydia tests are highly unreliable, including self-tests for use at home. (Because they are unreliable, no such tests are available or routinely used in some countries, such as the US.) With a "very faint" positive result, your test likely is false. However, if you are at risk for STDs (e.g. non-monogamous, new partner, etc), you should be professionally tested. Good luck! ...Read more

Can you get chlamydia any other way besides sexual contact? Or is there a chance a chlamydia test can come out false positive?

Can you get chlamydia any other way besides sexual contact? Or is there a chance a chlamydia test can come out false positive?

Poss, not likely: Chlamydia is spread usually by sexual contact, but it is an organism and can be spread less commonly in other ways, like skin contact. If you get the highly accurate dna test, not too likely this is falsely positive, more likely you need to be treated. But if in doubt, I always say get another test! ...Read more

What's the chances of chlamydia as gastro infection & recurring? My partner & I are faithful but I have just tested +ve for chlamydia (had it in past)

Possible...: Chlamydia is usually easily treated and cured with a single dose antibiotic. Repeat infections are usually due to getting another infection, rather than treatment failure. However single dose antibx might not work 100% for rectal chlamydia infection, if that's what you're asking. Suggest you both get tested & treated again & ask your Dr about a longer course of antibiotic (Doxycycline) this time ...Read more

I had Chlamydia in the past forgot to wash some clothes instead wore it a month later what is the chances of having chlamydia even dry discharge on it?

Here are some...: There has been no known clinical or experimental studies to address your concern. Theoretically, germs can gain access to the body if the first line of defense, i.e., natural barrier - skin & mucosa - is broken. After breaking the first line of defense, our humoral immune ability will take over and continue to protect us. So, it's practically unnecessary to worry about what in mind now. ...Read more

I recently been tested positive for chlamydia and likely passed it to my girlfriend she s very concerned that her chances are of getting pregnant are?

No risk: Chlamydia can cause fertility problems when it results in pelvic inflammatory disease (pid), which can damage fallopian tubes. But if there's no pid--just cervical infection or exposure to chlamydia without symptoms--there should be no risk, as long as it's treated. ...Read more

What is the chances of a antibiotic for chlamydia not working?

Zero to 15%: The two main treatments are doxycycline 100 mg twice daily for 7 days or azithromycin 1 gram single dose. Doxy is100% effective if taken as directed, with no missed doses. Evolving research shows azithro is about 95% effective, i.e. it fails in 1 in 20 patients, up to 10-15% if the rectum is infected. All patients should be retested after ~3 mo to detect both treatment failure and reinfection. ...Read more

I hear that it is rare to contract chlamydia or gonareaha via oral sex from a female. How rare in percentage are the chances?

Oral Sex and STDs: It is common. Not rare. Humans who perform oral sex on the penis are at risk of contracting gonorrhea and chlamydia. They often do not know that they have this infection because it is often symptom free in the throat. The male who has received the oral sex, however, if he gets infected, is most likely to get symptoms in his penis within four to five days post exposure. ...Read more

I got my results for Chlamydia/Gonnrea today. It was -ve. I still have not my HIV results. My chances of contracting HIV if I had protected sex?

HIV: If by 'protected' you mean you used a condom, then your risk is minimal to none. Of course, it's always possible that a tiny breach in the condom could cause risk of exposure, but this would also constitute a very tiny risk, and that's assuming that your partner is HIV positive. Of course, you are right to do the test, but the liklihood is all will be fine! ...Read more
