In brief: Yes

Women who have had PID (pelvic inflammatory disease) may have developed scar tissue or tubal damage which can impede conceiving, but many will not have had such damage.
For those who are having trouble conceiving and evaluation reveals there to be damage, there are options to either fix the damage or bypass it with procedures such as ivf.

In brief: Yes

Pelvic inflammatory disease potentially can damage the fallopian tubes and lead to infertility, but this is not by any means certain.
If you have had that diagnosis though, it is very important to check as early as possible with a doctor if you have a positive pregnancy test to assure that the pregnancy has not lodged in one of these tubes, where it can create serious problems.
