I have hade Chlamydia twice, can i still fall pregnant or not????

Chlamydia can absolutely

Chlamydia can absolutely affect your chances of getting pregnant – the biggest risk factor is in how long the STI was left untreated. An untreated infection can spread into the fallopian tubes and cause the tubes to become blocked at the very ends. The good news is that even if the chlamydia led to severe pelvic inflammatory disease (PID), marked by pain, fever, and a high white blood cell count, you are unlikely to have compromised your fertility. With one episode of PID, your chance of infertility is about 15 percent.
The biggest problem is that about 75% of infected women and about 50% of infected men have no symptoms of chlamyida infection. If symptoms do occur, they usually appear within 1 to 3 weeks after exposure.

The STI is diagnosed with a urine test.

Tests for tube damage aren't usually done until you've had trouble getting pregnant. Usually, the best way to tell if there is damage is a hysterosalpingogram (HSG), an X-ray test that looks at the inside of the uterus and fallopian tubes and the area around them.

Scar tissue can form in the fallopian tubes and inside the abdomen. These scars can block the fallopian tubes, which can cause difficulty getting pregnant. If the tubes are partly blocked, fertilized eggs may not reach the uterus and the pregnancy can form in the fallopian tubes (known as a tubal or ectopic pregnancy). Surgery can repair the tubes usually.
