Can pelvic inflammatory disease cause infertility?
The more times you have pelvic inflammatory disease, the more likely it is that you won't be able to get pregnant. When you have
pelvic inflammatory disease, bacteria infect the tubes or cause inflammation of the tubes. This turns normal tissue into scar tissue. Scar tissue can block your tubes and make it harder to get pregnant. Even having just a little scar tissue can keep you from getting pregnant without infertility treatment.
