Okay I just found out I am preggo and also I believe I have a STD (chlamydia). What do I do? Will this harm the baby? Will the pills work? Help I need all info on this!
You need to get the chlamydia treated *immediately* and not have sex with anyone until you have had instruction on what you need to do to protect your baby. You may harm your baby if you *don't* take the pills.
