Help! could i be infertile now?

Patient

Q: I had an operation 6 months or so ago for appendicitis, they found puss behind my uterus and explained it could be that i have caught chlamydia. they took tests and gave me antibiotics just until i see my gyno (first time) by the time i got an appointment i had finished the antibiotics and my luck the computers crashed and they did a pap smear, to determin i was fine and she said whatever they found it is now gone. But now my boyfriend and i have been trying ever since for a baby and no matter when, what or how many times we have sex, i cannot fall pregnant. could it really have been chlamydia and is there a test to take to see if i am now infertile? please help, all we want is to be a family.
