  • It can lead to PID (which causes sterility) if left untreated.

  • I had a friend go through the same thing. It can cause scar tissue to build up on your fallopian tubes... basically endometriosis. they can sometimes clear that out, but it doesn't always work. She should talk to her OB about it. My friend had to have IVF...
