When to go to doctors about fertitlity if you've had PID

Hello all,

My DH and I have been trying properly since November (well, did start trying in September but all went wrong thanks to Thrush and terrible work related stress). I've had two cycles when I have been certain something was brewing (sore boobs, sickness) but AF came two days later each time.
I did have a mysterious PID infection when I started being sexually active at 16 (my first boyfriend and we were at it all the time day and night), but no infections aside from thrush since then (am 32).
I did get pregnant at 17, but had a termination at 14 weeks.
I'm worried that there may be some scarring inside, or that my tubes may be damaged, although I had thought as I conceived after the PID I would be okay?
Should we go to the doctors for early tests or would they say I was daft?

The fact you've concieved since having PID is good.

I had PID when i was 18. I was told it was highly unlikely i would concieved without assistance...

I have had 3dc since then, no issues or problem conceiving them.

I would approach my GP if i were you though. Your 32 so you do have time. I would tell my GP i had been trying since September not November...

It won do any harm to have a chat & some preliminary tests. If you do need further assistance, sooner is better rather than later!

Good luck.

Thanks Shelly, that gives me hope! I'll go to the doctor next week.

Fingers crossed xx
