In brief: Need to be treated

The longer you have an untreated std and the higher the number of episodes of std he higher the chances of infertility, mainly blockage of the fallopian tubes.
The chances of blocked tube is ~ 12% after one pelvic infection, 23% after 2 and 53% after 3. Antibiotics treatment and the use of condoms as well as bcp is highly recommended.
