Has anyone ever had chlamydia and did not know it and had their baby? Does anyone know what will happen if this happens

if you go to the doc. shouldnt they test for that? You are not thinking about not going to to doc. because you may have chlamydia are you? If you do have it there can be complications and probably permanent consiquences. They can treat it I think, so it won't harm the baby. Go to the doc!

Have been to the dr., I don't think that they tested for the std...I had it about 8 yrs ago and am just worried that I could have it again and not know it. They only tested for Hep. and Hiv I believe...is that normal

you may be right...I just looked it up for you and I don't think that's a standard test they do. I did look up the infection and it said that it is treatable and can lead to few or no complications with baby. I would think that maybe if you had that it would have came back in your Pap test. If I were you (and I know it's scarey) I would just get tested and if you do have it, wich I doubt you do, get treatment for it. Are you prego?

yes, and I'm due to deliver Monday the 16th...I guess that's what's wrong with me...you know, thinking of everything that could go wrong.

well I don't know if this makes you feel any better, but i just looked up that they generaly test for that during a pap test. I think you will be fine. They test for so much that you don't even know about. I know that was tested for me by pap, only because I asked her what I was tested for and she told me. I think you are fine! I do the same thing. Worry about everything. If there is a disease, I have it and my baby's got it too!!!! I'm sure they tested you for it! They say that there are relatively no symptoms of it, so how else would we know we had it if they didn't test us for it. I know I was because I asked my m/w.

another thing....you know how they are at the docs office. Not exaclty free with their info. If I hadn't asked them what I was tested for, I never would have known. I just went back one day and she said "ok looks like all the test results came back good" I was like "well tell me what I DON'T HAVE PLEASE!" lol......Lots of luck to you also.....boy/girl?

Girl...we're so excited. Still can't decide on a name yet though! :) We're trying to but can't agree on one.

They do test you for chlamydia when you have a pap smear. You should talk to your doctor though. You have enough on your mind right now I am sure.
