I had chlamydia and I have a cyst in my ovary and I'm planing on having kids some day . Is there a chance that I still have a hope on having kids ?

Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for reaching out to us for advice.

Chlamydia is known to have potentially detrimental effects on a woman's fertility, even years after the infection is contracted, which makes many would-be moms raise the question: does previous Chlamydia cause problems with pregnancy?

You need to talk with your gynecologist, who knows the extent of damage caused by chlamydia and the status of the ovarian cyst.

Any previous infection of Chlamydia renders a woman at a greater risk of problems during her pregnancy. Previous damage to the pelvic region or associated reproductive organs may be directly linked to some common pregnancy problems.

Possible problems resulting from Chlamydia infection are:
Pelvic inflammatory disease
Ectopic pregnancy
Chronic pelvic pain

Having an ovarian cyst shouldn't affect your ability to get pregnant, though cysts caused by endometriosis or a polycystic ovarian syndrome may make it more difficult to conceive.
