It is a curable sexually

It is a curable sexually transmitted infection, but you must, must,must get treated by a physician for it. If you take all of the antibiotic and your symptoms do not go away, you must go back to your health care provider as you may need a different medication.

Getting pregnant with an STI like this one can cause serious problems for you and for baby. First of all, it can make it difficult to get pregnant, or if you do, you are much more likely to have an ectopic pregnancy, where the egg attaches tot he fallopian tube. This can be life-threatening for you.

If you do get pregnant with an infection like this one, babies can get eye infections and are at a much higher risk of pneumonia.

Your best bet? Get to a local clinic or health care provider today and make sure you get the help you need (and your partner, too) to make sure you are as healthy as you can be.
