Probably not. The quicker you're treated the better. You're at the greatest risk when you're not treated because that can lead to PID.

* Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection of the uterus, fallopian tubes, and other parts within the pelvis. This can cause chills, fever, and pelvic pain. PID may lead to infertility. Some women may not have symptoms until PID has been present for a while.

Take care of yourself, and let us know what your doctor says. Hopefully all will be okay. Pat

Anon - Why do you think you may have gotten chylamydia a month ago? It's possible to have this infection with absolutely no symptoms. You will learn more about your diagnosis and treatment when you see the doctor. In the meantime, here's reference information on the causes, symptoms and treatment:

If your doctor does not provide information on how to prevent sexually transmitted diseases please seek information from a reputable source. Chlamydia is just one of many STD's that could impact your fertility.
Take care, Pat
