I had untreated chlamydia for 2 years, is that enough time to make me infertile? Watch
I first had unprotected sex in August 2014 with my 1st BF, I know it was stupid. I was on the pill so we were only thinking about possible pregnancy STIs didn't even come into the picture. I do remember asking him to use a condom but he said that because I'm on the pill I would be OK and I stupidly listened to him. But I've learned my lesson since.
My main concern now is that it looks like I have had Chlamydia since August 2014 so that is practically 2 years (I've been treated now). I never really had any symptoms for it which is why I didn't get tested for so long, and I trusted my first bf aswell.
I am 19 years old soon to be 20 and now I am really scared that my fertility has been affected and that I may be infertile, it is a dream of mine to have my own kids in the future. I was wondering if 2 years of untreated chlamydia is enough time to leave a woman infertile?
Please no harsh responses. Thank you x
Try not to worry. There are plenty of cases where untreated chlamydia, even when left for years, does not cause infertility.
In those where it does, it doesn't make them 'infertile' in the sense that they can't have a child, but it makes it harder for them to do so.
While talking to a doctor is a good idea, I suspect that the only way to tell if you've been affected is to try to become pregnant. If it takes longer than a year, then it (or something else, including your partner's fertility) will be said to be causing a problem.
