If you have Pelvic Inflammatory Disease it can cause belly pain, fever, and perhaps the inability to have children (infertility), a pregnancy outside the uterus (ectopic pregnancy), and chronic pelvic pain.

If you are under 18 you can be checked and treated for STDs without getting permission from your parents.
