I had a very bad period, very heavy, for a long length of time. I ended up going anemic and have six blood transfusion, then a dnc. I was put on a birth control called seasonique to regulate my periods.
Yesterday my gyn called and told me I had chlamydia, and I have to go to appointment on thursday to get medications. Im in a serious relationship, and we live together, we've been together for four months, and I am not sure if I had it before him, or got it from him. Also, I've had this pain in my left lower abdomin, for awhile now, right around the time we got together.
My questions are
1.) How long does it take for chlamydia to cause serious damage, like infertility?
2.)Can a doctor tell you how long you've had it?
3.) Now that i've got it once, will I have a higher risk of getting it again?
4.) Is the pain in my abdomin a sign that somethings really wrong?
5.) Could I have gotten it from a blood transfusion? (I read somewhere you can)
