Hi, I was diagnosed and treated for PID once and also treated

Resolved Question:

Hi,

I was diagnosed and treated for PID once and also treated again with another suspected case although not confirmed. I am concerned about my fertility as have been trying for a year now to no luck and was told at the time it could effect my fertility. I would like to do a private test, I have seen there is a test available AMH blood test - would this test actually be beneficial in related to my previous medical history as to wether or not I should be able to have children?

Hello
A blood test is not going to assess if your tubes are blocked from infection.

Are you up to date on exams?

Have you had any other testing?

exams? What do you mean, yes I thought it might not be the answer. No I have not had any other test my GP was awful when I went to ask and said just keep trying naturally.

OK
You should see an obstetrician or fertility expert at this point.

You need one of the three tests listed on this page

These will show if you have tubal disease and if this is the problem.
