Thanks for writing in.
If I were your treating physician, I would treat you for pelvic inflammatory disease
(PID) with a 14 day course of doxycycline, metronidazole/clindamycin
. After that, I would repeat a scan and a culture to make sure the infection has been eliminated.
The pain that you are describing does not sound like the pain in Pelvic inflammatory disease. It does sound like sciatica and I wish that someone do a complete physical examination ( including a neurological and orthopaedic examination). We can then rule out sciatica comfortably.
Secondly, PID can cause infertility
, mostly by blocking the tubes. This can be assessed by an investigation called a hysterosalpingogram.
However, as a first step, get the PID treated. Next, have unprotected sexual intercourse preferably every day or atleast every alternate day between days 10-20 of your cycle. If you do not conceive within 1 year of doing this, we'll evaluate you for infertility. This is assuming that your cycles are regular and your partner's semen analysis
Hope this helps.
