I learned 2 weeks ago that I had Chlamydia and was treated for it. I have only been sexually actively for six months. I think I may have gotten it in February. I didn't have any signs or symptoms. But I do remember in March when I had vaginal itching but I just thought it was due to my period and it went away a week later. So basically, I am scared because I've been researching and learned that chlamydia can produce PID, which can cause infertility.
I keep track of my period and for the month of July it came two days late and when it came on I was extremely nauseous. Now, my period is scheduled to come soon, like today the 31st, but yesterday I was extremely nauseous but no period yet. I am afraid that I am infected with PID.
My questions are how does it take for Chlamydia to turn into PID? and Is it possible that I do have PID, although I was treated for chlaymdia?
There is set time frame for PID to develop. It can take several months to a year or maybe a bit more depends on the person.. I see your concern since you've probably had the infection for about 5 months. PID I know usally comes with abdominal pain so terrible. Talk to your health care provider ask if you should be concerned about PID or if you can rule it out.
I contracted chlamdia from a cheating boyfriend and see it often goes with PID in which my niece contracted her first time having sex- now Im worried about my experience. I had comprehensive bloodwork done, can you be tested specifically for PID, I know my Dr would have tested me for it if there is in fact a test, then I know I do not have it. Im freakin out now. Can someone shed some light on this please? IS THERE A TEST FOR PID. OH, and I have no symptoms or irregularities in my menstrual cycle or pain in my abdomen. Thanks, LYN
