I am trying to get pregnant, but have been told that it is harder for me because I once had chlamydia. I have been treated and am fully recovered. How come I am still affected by the chlamydia even though it is gone?

In women, untreated infection can spread into the fallopian tubes and cause the tubes to become blocked at the ends. This is known as hydrosalpinx. They can also develop scar tissue around the fallopian tubes that makes it more difficult for the tube to pick up the egg at the time of ovulation. These particular problems can lead to infertility and an increased risk for ectopic (tubal) pregnancy. We would be very optimistic about an effective fertility treatment with IVF for you based on the information you provided and would love to talk to you about a wide variety of IVF options (conventional IVF, Mini-IVF™, or natural cycle IVF (nIVF). Please consider contacting us for a consultation.
