Diagnosed with intramural stenosis on both fallopian tubes, chlamydia, asthenoteratozoospermia. Done laparoscopia explorativa. IVF?

Dear Doctor,
I have one child at the age of 5 and I conceived spontaneosly. For the past two years my husband and I tried to have another child but with no success. I did Laparoscopia explorativa and I've been diagnosed with intramural sstenosis on both fallopian tubes. So we started to prepare for IVF. Another problem that arised was that I have Chlamydia. Can that be the reason for the stenosis? On top of that my husband's spermogram came out with diagnosis Asthenoteratozoospermia. Can you please explain to me the real meaning of that term, I am really worried especially for the "terato". And at the end what are our chances of me getting pregnant and having another healty child? Thank you in advance

Thanks for the query.
Yes chlamydia can be the causative agent for your condition.
Asthenoteratozoospermia means decrease in count as well as motility of sperms.
Both of these are required for normal pregnancy to occur.
However it is not a contraindication for IVF.
you can go for IVF, but first chlamydia must be treated
Let me know if you have any other doubt.
