Consequences of STDs: It is very unlikely that you will have long term consequences given you treated quickly and took the full treatment. Pid is internal in your pelvis and thus could not be the cause of a 'bad' odor.... Hope this helps you feel better.

No answer: There is no clear answer to this question. You can not predict who will get PUD and who will have tubal damage after gonorrhea.
