Chlamydia- How long does it take this STD to cause a man/woman to become sterile??!!

I recently seen a doctor for what I thought was a reaccuring Yeast infection & found out I have Chlamydia.....That means I've had this for about a year and a couple months, and didnt known it.  I contracted this about 3 months before I started dating someone with whom I've been with for a year now.... I feel horrible because he's had some weird health issues since a couple weeks after we started dating, & now I know its because of me.  The one time I freaken have sex without a condomn and I get an STD! I feel so stupid!  I read Chlamydia can cause one to become sterile if not treated for too long. I'm only 25 ....My bf and I both want children some day....How long does it take Chlamydia to make one sterile?? PLEASE HELP! :(

There really is no set time period, but typically it takes couple of years and even then the chance of that happening is very low. I would not worry about it at this time.

You either got a false positive, or he had it, got it treated and never told you about it. I lean towards a false positive.

I've read that false positive results are very rare in women...but is it possible he got a false negetive result?  He's worried now that I have cheated because of the test results, but I have never cheated.  My boyfriend is going to go get tested again.  I probably should also...even tho I took the prescribed pills two days ago?  I've been with him a year & don't want to lose him over false suspicion.

False positives are more common then false nagatives.

Since you medicated your test results will not show anything. If you had not medicated then you could retest to see if it was a false positive or not.

My tongue is kind of white now... Ive looked up stuff on that and found something called "Hairy tongue"? I think that may be what I have except mine is just white, not brown or black... I'm pretty sure the doctor was right when he diagnosed me w/ Chlamydia...Is a white tongue a symptom of that?  It has me worried so I wanted an opinion.
