After catching stds i know it takes years but how many years does it take long term illness such as pelvic diease to show syntoms?
Usually a few weeks: Some cases of PID never cause symptoms. A woman can have infertility or tubal pregnancy from past PID and not know until tests show blocked or scarred tubes.

However, no STD is a likely cause either of a scar or new sore. Oral herpes comes closest, but isn't considered an STD.

Can chalmdyia cause any long term issues to a male penis once it is treated?chronic inflammation such as mild string after peeing.two negtive STD test
