Chlamydia During Pregnancy

How chlamydia affects you and baby during pregnancy and how to safely treat it.

What’s the best way to treat chlamydia during pregnancy?

You can take certain antibiotics during pregnancy to clear up the infection and prevent any harm to your baby.

What can I do to prevent chlamydia?

Practice safe sex. Your best bet is a monogamous relationship with an STD-free partner. If you’re unsure of your partner’s sexual history or STD status, insist on using condoms.

What do other pregnant moms do when they have chlamydia?

“I was tested at the beginning of my pregnancy for chlamydia (and others), and the tests came back negative. My husband had also been tested within the year...also negative. I was just tested again at 37 weeks, and the test for chlamydia came back positive!”

“The doc office called 18 days after I went in and told me I had chlamydia. Why would they wait that long? My husband swears he was faithful. I have been. We’ve been together 3.5 years. Neither one of us had any symptoms.”

Are there any other resources for chlamydia during pregnancy?
