See your ob dr immediately. Do not try to treat an infection by yourself. Chlamydia is the most common sexually transmitted bacterium in the United States. Although the majority of chlamydial infections do not have symptoms, pregnant women may have abnormal vaginal discharge, bleeding after sex, or itching/burning with urination. Untreated chlamydial infection has been linked to problems during pregnancy, including preterm labor, premature rupture of the membranes surrounding the baby in the uterus, and low birth weight. The newborn may also become infected during delivery as the baby passes through the birth canal. Neonatal (newborn) infections lead primarily to eye and lung infections. All pregnant women should be tested for chlamydia at their first prenatal visit. Repeat testing in the third trimester should be done for women at high risk.
