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?
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! ...Read more
With whom? what rx?: If you wish to resume genital-sexual relations with the same partner and you were both treated simultaneously, there should be no need to delay. If you have a new partner, it may be useful and reassuring to have a "test of cure" i.e. repeat your chlamydia tests to confirm you are cured and that you can safely "have sex again". Be safe; use condoms too. ...Read more

But if you had obvious PID, you should discuss it with the doctor who treated you. ...Read more
