Have you been diagnosed with PID? Are you worried that PID could influence your ability to have a baby?

We're talking about Pelvic Inflammatory Disease as it relates to infertility and infertility causes. PID is a general term for infection of the uterus and/or fallopian tubes. Often there are no symptoms to detect PID early. As it progresses there may develop a discharge with a foul odor, pain with intercourse, and cramps.

Women are most at risk between the ages of 25 and 35. The risk increases if there is a history of PID. Those most at risk are women who have unprotected sex with multiple partners. It is simply a case of more potential exposure to diseases.

This disease is often secondary to a sexually transmitted disease, especially chlamydia and gonorrhea, that have gone untreated for any length of time.

The only good precaution is to refrain from irresponsible sexual activity. That would be having multiple partners, or having casual sex.

Couples should use condoms if they have any doubt. Even in a committed relationship, both parties should be tested if they have had previous partners.

PID is really the body's response to infection. As it mounts resistance, inflammation and scarring develop over time. These conditions interfere with conception and pregnancy. Ectopic pregnancy is commonly the result of PID.

The risk of Infertility is higher in women who have had more than one episode of PID.

The most common infections to cause Pelvic Inflammatory Disease are chlamydia and gonorrhea.

If you are having difficulty attaining pregnancy and have a history of STDs, it is adviseable to see your physician.
