Can PID Lead to Infertility in Women?
2 Replies
Arose - July 31

I am a mother of two, and I have been trying to conceive for the third time with no success. I have visited some clinics looking for a solution to the problem, but I have not been successful. The last doctor I visited looked into my history and pointed out that the cause of the problem is the Pelvic inflammatory disease(PID) I suffered from three years ago. The doctor told me that it is possible that my fallopian tube constricted as a result of the infection. He also told me that it is possible that the bacteria may have scarred my womb and this could be the cause of the troubles I am having.
At this juncture, I would like to seek for help especially from people who have had this type of experience or medical doctors who specialize in this area. Let me know if I can regain my fertility if I am put on the right medication or surgery. I would also welcome other suggestion such as resorting to IVF. Also, a friend of mine referred me to biotecom one of the leading clinics that offer IVF services. Kindly suggest to me other clinics that offer this service at affordable rates.

I have a genetic immunodeficiency condition which causes me to catch recurrent infections. This includes PID as well. I was diagnosed with immunodeficiency at a young age and since then i have had recurrent pelvic infections. I got married at a young age and conceived spontaneously. After that we took a break and decided to have another kid 4 years later. I was unaware of the fact how serious my condition was. During these 4 years i had more rounds of pelvic infections. I was unable to conceive second time because according to the doctor my tubes the so much scarred that both of them were blocked due to the scarring. And so was my uterus. My last resort was IVF and i had my second baby at 38 years of age. I would probably still be infertile if i would't have opted for IVF.

Thank you, Rebecca, after reading your story, I realized that my problem is not as big as I thought. I was on the verge of losing hope, but I can assure you that I feel uplifted and on the top of the world. I have also done some research about IVF, and I am surprised that we already have five million children who have been born courtesy of the process. My trouble is finding a clinic that offers the services at a price that we can afford. My preliminary research shows that in USA and Canada, you need more than $150,000 to book a place in one of their facilities. In the UK, the story is not different because the price is almost the same. I have a few options in Europe which charge about $10,000 for the first round. This is why I am asking anyone with information regarding the cost of the procedure to share this vital information with me to enable me to start planning for it. Have a lovely day, and God bless.
