Yes: It can be quite common for women to have evidence of past pid without ever having had symptoms. Unfortunately this is usually discovered when someone is dealing with infertility.
A 25-year-old male asked:
Had a chlamydia infection about 2 years ago. Got treated and am now fine. Any chances this infection can cause health problems in the future or no?

Yes: Chlamydia in the past increases your risk of pelvic inflammatory disease and can lead to infertility or at least an increase ectopic (tubal) pregnancies.
