Dr. Adamson shares if contracting an STD (Sexually Transmitted Disease) like Chlamydia can prevent a woman from getting pregnant.

Dr. David Adamson:
Chlamydia and other sexually transmitted diseases cause inflammation or swelling and damage to the fallopian tubes, and as a result they are not able to transport the sperm up to the egg and they are not able to transport the egg and the embryo back into the uterus. And so it’s very important to have healthy tubes and these can be easily damaged by sexually transmitted diseases.
