The first guy I ever slept with gave me chlamydia. I knew nothing about sex really and I didn't even know what an STD was. I met my hub, gave it to him. We both had it for YEARS! Didn't have any signs or symptoms of anything. I didn't know until I got pregnant 3 years after we met. I, like you, was extremely worried about the baby. Everything turned out fine. Take your meds. Remember that even though you don't like needles, this is what has to be done to ensure the safety of your baby. :)

And whoever told you that you got it from a toilet seat is running the oldest line in the world on you. You can't get it from toilet seats.

Stay strong. Keep telling yourself that you have to get the lab work done and that it will be over before you know it. You are taking your meds, doing what your suppose to. What is in your control, is under control.

That is all that will be done, you will take your pills and that's it. There is a good chance that your husband has it also. Get him to the Dr. too. Yes, he will be cured like you. No, I don't recommend having sex until all of the meds are finished, and the Dr. will tell you the same thing. You will start your pills sooner so don't have sex until the 2-3 weeks are up for hubby.
