Scared chlamydia could have made me infertile
Please can someone offer me advice or support, I'm literally going out of my mind with worry...
I have just been told I have Chlamydia. I have been with my boyfriend for 3 years, neither of us has cheated and I'm the only person he has slept with without a condom so I know it was either from my ex of 5 and a half years (he told me he hadn't got anything when we started going out and he was pretty disgusted at the thought of having one) or one of 3 guys I was seeing between boyfriends (which is probably most likely). I have never had symptoms that I'm aware of and neither has my bf which is why we never tested before. I'm petrified that I have had this for between 3 and 8 years. When I tried explaining to the nurse who gave me the tablets my fears that the Chlamydia could have developed into PID she didn't seem bothered and told me that if nothing happens after a year of trying go and get some tests. That would mean a further years worth of damage to my insides if i do have something. I'm literally making myself sick with worry that I have ruined my chances having children now and it's tearing me up that I could have cost my boyfriend, who is the nicest caring person in the world, the chance to be a dad. Every time I google it there has been horror stories and I just cant deal with it. I'm going to the doctors next Friday to try and insist they do tests but they probably wont until I've been ttc for a year.
Please can someone shed a ray of hope for me. I'm going to bits over this
