I went to the doctors for my first pap smear yesterday, and before even testing me she told me something wasn't right and it looked like chlamydia.
My boyfriend passed it to me and I'm sure of it, and he went to get tested yesterday. I never had any symptoms what so ever, and I've been with my boyfriend for a year and a half, therefore that means I've had the disease for that long unless hes been unfaithful.
After a year and a half do you think I could have PID or have become infertile already?

It's also unlikely that you're infertile.Chlamydia can remain dormant and asymptomatic for relatively long periods of time in both males and females. It is generally diagnosed with either a urine screening or a urethral "scraping" and is easily treated with a single dose of oral azithromycin or a week's regimen of oral doxycycline twice daily.I assume that your doc did some definitive labs and suggested treatment?Be well!John<
