    I have been a humanitarian worker for 3 years. I have been in most of the third world countries and some of the largest slums in the world. In my last visit I handled a victim of rape. I took the necessary precautions like gloves and the like but at some point due to the trauma she used a surgical blade to cut me. I took test and found out she was infected with an STI. I got infected but I treated it early with antibiotics and other medications. My husband and i have been trying to get pregnant and I read somewhere that STIs can cause complications and even infertility. Should I be worried??

    hi, pid is a very serious disease that can cause blockages in the Fallopian tubes. its good you are on antibiotics i really don’t know whether there is another kind of medication. but i think you should go get more check ups and do that often. once or twice every year. and yes you should be worried about your health.
