Hello.: Hello. That question doesn't have a definitive answer. One person can have a stronger immune system than another. One thing is for certain, the longer you have untreated chlamydia; the higher the risk of damaging your reproductive system. The infection can spread to the uterus. The lining of the uterus can become damaged making it difficult for a fertilized egg to impant.

How are twins happening in older stars! Will there ever be a cure for infertility in regular older females?
Probably donor egg!: Many stars in their "late 40's" are succceding with egg donation but very few publicly talk about fertility treatment such as ivf, let alone use of an egg donor.
