Scared: need reassurance from mums.
Seems a bit odd putting this is general chat, buy I realised that posting in TTC board might not be very productive, and when I posted in a babies board I got no responses, so I'm hoping 3rd time is the charm.
I'm putting myself through a really tough time at the moment as we embark on TTC our first. I'lloyds cut a long story short and simply say that I was unlucky enough to have a ex 'overlap' me with another girl/s and give me chlamydia in my uni days. I had it anywhere between 8 or 3 months. I had bad UTI symptoms which alerted me to an issue and prompted me to get tested. I'd been tested (clear) early in the relationship, hence I can pin point max time I'd had it. I was treated and no Dr mentioned PID or it having progressed- I was unaware of the condition and didn't ask if it applied to me. I was throughly examined though.
I'm crying nearly daily because I'm petrified and paranoid that I am infertile because of having had it. The media and information is predictably and understandably really negative- emphasising risks to fertility so as to stop girls being irresponsible/ encourage ppl to get tested. I understand that, but it battering my PMA rapidly.
Are there any mums out there who have had chlamydia or PID in the past and later got pregnant successfully? I know ppl may be embarrassed by this topic, and I know how cheeky it is of me to ask, but It would really mean a lot to me (and my partner, who is the loveliest chap and is running out of ways to comfort me). Or maybe you know of someone who has and you could share their story anonymously? Please let me know there is hope!
