Expert Q & A Answers About chlamydia testing

I’ve heard that STDs can make you infertile...is that true?

My friend told me that if you have an STD, even if you’ve been treated, that you won’t be able to have a baby. Is that true? I got chlamydia from an old boyfriend, but I got tested and got medication from my doctor to get rid of it. Now I’m in love with someone new, and I wonder if I’ll ever be able to have kids.

How do I get tested for STDs?

What tests detect STDs? Is there one test or are there a series of tests?
