Best Answer

There are safe, effective treatments for chlamydia during pregnancy. It is much safer to take treatment than it is to stay infected. Both recommended treatments for chlamydia during pregnancy, azithromycin and amoxicillin, are medications that are regularly and safely used in newborns.

Untreated chlamydia during pregnancy can cause premature rupture of membranes or preterm labor. A baby born to a woman who has chlamydia at the time of delivery may have pneumonia, infection of the reproductive tract, or conjunctivitis.

Women treated for chlamydia during pregnancy should be retested three weeks after treatment, as well as three months after treatment. Women under 26 or with a new partner during pregnancy should also be tested in the third trimester to make sure they haven't been reinfected before delivery.
