Infertility

Please Help Me

11/07/2008

Question:

If I had chlamydia for 2 years and didn`t know it, could this have affected my fertility, even though I have recently been treated for the virus?

Answer:

The only way to determine whether or not you have tubal blockage from your chlamydia would be to perform a hysterosalpingogram or HSG.  This is an x-ray test in which dye is injected into the uterus; x-ray pictures are then taken which demonstrate whether the uterine cavity is normal, as well as whether the fallopian tubes are open.
