Our expert says:
It is certainly possible to have fertility problems after even a single bout of PID. This depends to a large extent on the organism (bacteria) causing the infection in the first place and also on the dose of microorganisms contracted.
The major consequence is tubal damage and therefore if you have problems conceiving I would suggest that some form of tubal evaluation be undertaken. This can be done by means of an x-ray called an HSG or alternately a laparoscopy.
The symptoms that you described are rare and should not be relied upon and I would suggest that a pregnancy test be done as soon as possible.
