Some women are able to have become pregnant who have had PID; other women have infertility issues and may need treatment in order to conceive.

Have you talked with your doctor about the likelihood of being able to conceive with your current condition?

Hi Anonymous,
If I understand your question correctly, about five to six years ago, you were diagnosed with PID, received treatment and have not been able to get pregnant since then.
PID stands for pelvic inflammatory disease and it can lead to serious consequences like infertility( not being able to get pregnant), ectopic pregnancy ( a pregnancy in the fallopian tube or elsewhere outside of the womb), abscess formation and chronic pelvic pain. Prompt and appropriate treatment can help prevent permanent damage to the female reproductive system.
PID can be cured with several types of antibiotics. A health care provider will determine and prescribe the best therapy. However, antibiotic treatment does not reverse any damage that has already occurred to the reproductive organs. If a woman has pelvic pain and other symptoms of PID, it is critical that she seek care immediately. Prompt antibiotic treatment can prevent severe damage to reproductive organs. The longer a woman delays treatment for PID, the more likely she is to become infertile or to have a future ectopic pregnancy because of damage to the fallopian tubes.
This is general information on PID provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Now, to address your asking for more on how you can have a baby, you need to consult your doctor or visit a clinic. A physical exam, medical history and diagnostic tests such as a pelvic ultrasound can help a qualified health care professional determine why you have not been able to get pregnant.
