Many who have STD's treated will not have tube damage, but any damage could lead to poor function without full blockage. You may want to wait until you have trouble conceiving to do all the testing. There are ways to bypass tubes through IVF, to have kids. ...Read more

Is it possible to show symptoms the first time you catch an STD but are asymptomatic the second time? I'm curious as to whether or not its possible to have an std/sti and show symptoms get cured, then catch a second, but are asymptomatic the second time.
Actually, they do!: The immune system clears up most STDs. Without treatment, gonorrhea and chlamydia usually are self cured by the immune system after a few weeks or months, but sometimes only after serious complications have occurred. Syphilis usually persists, but not always. HPV and genital warts are cleared by the immune system as well. Herpes is partly controlled by immunity, but not cured. ...Read more
