Diagnosed with chlamydia. Will it lead to infertility?

Hey, i have a question about chalmydia. I have been with my bf since jan. we were together until oct of last year and split up a couple months. we both had a sexual partner in between. a little over a month ago he was having pain urinating and he thought it was a uti . he was tested and they said no. he is now going to see a urlogist. but i was having a different kind of symtoms and i had a bacterial v last year and thought it was that. she said yes but i got tested for everything else. i found out it was chalmydia. So my question is whether or not its possible to have it for 6 to 7 months and it not show up. or does it mean one of us had another sexual partner? Neither one of us had any tests done in the past 7 months either so there was never any postive or negative tests before. i had been tested back in sept because I had got herpes from an ex who was cheating. I am also so confused by this. i know it will go away im picking up meds tomorrow but how long does it take to make a women infertile? i want another child someday and am concerned. Thank you for your time.

Hello and welcome to HCM,
As evident from your history that you are suffering from chlamydial and herpes simplex infection.
The sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) occur due to practicing unsafe sex.
Unsafe sex includes having multiple partners and not using barrier method while having sex.
Oral contraceptive pills do not control transmission of STDs.
Many STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia are known to cause infertility but it is not seen in all cases.
Prompt treatment clears away the infection.
So, do not worry and take complete antibiotic course. You can get pregnant in future.
Practice safe sex in future and avoid multiple partners.

Thanks and take care
