Ok this is the problem. I am very upset and still not sure how I want to handle this situation. I went to ETMC with an unbareable pain in my abdomine and pelvic region. I was given a cathater, had blood work drawn, xrays and a gynological exam. I was diagnosed with PID (pelvic inflamatory disease) 3 1/2 hours later. The main causes of this are gonorrhea and chlamydia, It can also be caused by bacteria. Either way it can be sexually transmitted. I have had the same partner for 6 years. In order for us to get back to normal he would have to get tested as well, and if he didnt, the chances of my PID returning increased. A common symptom of PID is infertility. Infact PID is the number one leading cause of infertility in America. I always wanted to have another baby, and obviously I was worried about that. I made another doctor's appointment earlier than the 2 weeks that was recomended. That was enough time for me to finish the antibiotics I was on. Nine days after taking my antibiotics and pain medicine, I found out that I did not have PID. What I had was a Corpus Lutium Cyst Rupture. That happened a little after I became pregnant. Thats right, pregnant. I was diagnosed with something that required me to take medication that I should not have been taking during pregnancy, and I had xrays. I was only 2 days passed my missed cycle, so I had no idea. Now Im still not in the clear and I am still waiting on my test results back to see what we have to do with the cyst. I went from being afraid I would never be able to have children to oops just kidding, your pregant. We made you and your boyfriend think we had some kid of bacteria, or an STD. This is just very upseting to me and I just cant belive this happened.
