Pathologist and Microbiologist 's  Response
Hello and welcome to HCM,
Chlamydial infection is known to remain asymptomatic for long duration of time.
The infection cleared up but it is possible for the infection to flare up after some time.
At this point of time, you and your partner need to avoid sexual contact.
It is important to treat chlamydial infection since it can cause intrauterine growth restriction or intrauterine death.
Consult your gynecologist before taking any medication since, any drug taken during pregnancy reaches the fetus and can cause harm to the fetus.

Thanks and take care
