Mild Cramping on left side

06/17/2004

Question:

I was recently treated for Chlamydia and every since then i have had slightly, minor ache in my left kind of in my hip near my Inguinal fold. It comes and goes, and some days its a little bit worse than others. It`s not as bad as a cramp, just kind of an uncomfortable feeling. I was wondering if its just side effects from the std or could it be something else? I am worried that i am not going to be able to have children... Thanks for your help!

Answer:

It is hard to say if the abdominal pain is due to the STD. The best way to find out is to have a gynecologic exam.
