Am I sterile?

LadyJ - February 16

Two days before I got married, my doctor in NY diagnosed me with Chlamydia. In my monogamous mind I knew it could only mean my soon to be husband cheated on me and gave it to me. To make a long story short, I received the medicine and I made my husband get retested as well to ensure that this is wasn't something from our past. (I was told that Chlamydia can live in a woman without you knowing for a long time.) Anyway, since then, my husband and I have been trying to have a baby constantly so when i miss my period you would think I was pregnant but I usually then get some weird spottings (not my period) which make me think that maybe my insides cannot hold a baby anymore because of the length of time I had the STD. I used to have regular periods but now I may miss it for months and still no signs of pregnancy on the home tests.
Now I also get this brown bleeding and stomache cramps but I am unsure of what to make of it . I moved to Florida and now I don't have the same helpful free clinics I used to go to. I am unable to afford health insurance. Can someone give me any helpful tips? I am worried I won't ever have the joy of having my own child someday or worst; I may die of complications within my body because of an STD that wasn't taken care of earlier on.
Any tips are appreciated.

So have you been retested? Is the medicine all cleared up? I dont know very much about chlamydia but i do know my cousin had it for about 6 months (the end of one relationship to the beginning of the next) Thank god they got tested. She did the meds and now she has 2 kids. She did have an ectopic but the doc said it didnt have to do with her chlamydia. So the best thing to do is save a bit of money and go to a clinic. I live in Canada so im not sure of the costs involved, so im sorry if this sounds silly to you or anyone else. I hope everything goes well for you and that your happy with your new guy.
