Question: Chlamydia/Impotence???


 tacbob - Sat Nov 20, 2004 7:04 am

I am desperately trying to find the answer as to why I became impotent after contracting Chlamydia when the two are not normally linked.
The problem broke up my relationship. The impotence began to slowly take effect after the first time I made love to my partner.When I was eventually treated for Chlamydia, gradually the impotence subsided. I am very upset about the damage it caused tothe relationship and confused because the two are not normally linked.

Thanks.

User avatar Complications among men are rare. Infection sometimes spreads to the epididymis (a tube that carries sperm from the testis), causing pain, fever, and sterility.
