In brief: Varies

Chlamydia may enter the female genital tract and cause injury & scaring to the sensitive fallopian tubes or worse.
If an infection is detected prior to damage & treated effectively, the problems can be minimized and natural pregnancy can occur. With todays tech a willing couple can harvest eggs, fertalize & implant embryos, bypassing the tubes. Expensive but possible
