Can you get pregnant while you have an STD?

My partner and I have an STD (chlamydia). We have a prescription to treat the STD, but we did not have protected sex and we wanted to know if there is a possibility of getting pregnant while having this STD?

My partner has had this STD for a while and was not aware of it. I have not had this for long, maybe 2 months He is afraid that he may have gone sterile by now, since he believes he has had it for a year and a half.


Dear D,

Yes, you can get pregnant when you have an STD. It is true that some STDs can result in damage to the fallopian tubes, leading to infertility, but that is not what happens most of the time.

Chlamydia does not cause men to become sterile. In fact, it often causes no problems at all for men.
