How long after being treated for chlamydia can you try to get pregnant?

How long after being treated for chlamydia can you try to get pregnant?

Depends on treatment: If treated with a single dose of azithromycin, you can safely conceive immediately. Azithro is not believed to be at all toxic to an embryo. If treated with doxycycline for a week, it would be best to avoid conception until 2-3 days after your last dose, so the antibiotic is entirely gone. Doxy isn't necessarily toxic to an embryo, but it might be; better safe than sorry. ...Read more

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?

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! ...Read more
