My friend was told she can't get pregnant normally because she had pid. Is this true?

In brief: Maybe

Pid, or pelvic inflammatory disease is usually caused by an infection.
Left untreated, the infection can cause permanent damage. If treated early and correctly, then infertility is much less likely.
