Chlamydia! Please HELP!

I just found out that I have Chlamydia. I think I've had it about 4 years. I had symptoms, but my doctor continued to tell me it was just a yeast infection without checking. But I went to a different doctor who told me I have Chlamydia. She also told me that my uterus is inflamed which I've read and researched could be a sign of PID, which leads to infertility. Does anyone know if this is possible? I'm only 18... I want a big family.

Yes it is possible, but most women fertility is not an issue. Having chlamydia for 4 years is unheard of, probably less time then that.
If you  are 18 if you think you have had it for 4 years then you were having unprotected sex at the age of 14?

Yes, I had unprotected sex at 14. I didn't go to the doctor for a really long time. I finally had a gynecologist test me and that's when I found out I have Chlamydia.

Have you had unprotected sex since age 14?
