Infertile? I just recently got my IUD out so me and my fiance could conceive I have been pregnant before and i got an abortion and i also have had chlamydia a few times could those factors cause me to be infertile?

Hello. : Hello. These issues can impact fertility. However, if the iud was just removed, this means that you have not been working very long to become pregnant (and the iud can have an impact as well). It is too early to say you are not fertile. Infertility is defined as not achieving pregnancy after 12 months of having fairly frequent, unprotected sex (or after at least 6 months if over age 35). Suggest that you talk with your doctor about how these issues could impact your desire to become pregnant. Take care. ...Read more

History chlamydia cervix inflammed (cured) got herpes also.2 years later your preg you want an abortion. Possiblity will it effect you on trying again?

Probably not: An std like chlamydia can affect fertility with scaring of tubes. An abortion could cause scaring of the lining of the uterus causing recurrent miscarriage and failed implantation. The good news is that these complications are low and rarely occur. Don't worry about it this now. Try and get pregnant when the time is right. ...Read more

Cervical cancer risk: Risk factors for cervical cancer are related to HPV infection, which increases as the number of sexual partners increases, and also probably with age at first sexual activity. Smoking may also contribute. The history you give suggests that you or your partner(s) are likely to also have HPV. Best prevention after behavior change is regular Pap screen and HPV testing. ...Read more

Unclear kind & dose: The specifics and relevance of concerns in the Q are unclear, although, nowadays, taking azithromycin 1 gm orally 1 hr before or 2 hrs after meal is highly recommended. It is right to treat & test the partner in 1-2 wks after taking azithromycin and to be monogamous. If you still have suspected symptoms for STD, be rechecked for if having other STDs like gono or trich other than chlamydia... ...Read more

High risk: It is hard to predict exactly what you specific doctor will do. Generally around this time first trimester genetic screening is done. Since you are over age 35 this is important. It is certainly reasonable to call your doctors office and ask the nurse for guidance on what tests you are due for at the next appointment. ...Read more
