Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection of one or more of the reproductive organs, including the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. Complementary support can support symptoms when taken alongside treatment from your doctor

What is Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID):

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an inflammation of the uterus, ovaries, and other areas of the female reproductive system[i].

Some women have no symptoms. Others have pain in the lower abdomen, fever, irregular vaginal discharge, irregular bleeding, and pain during intercourse or urination. PID may be diagnosed with a physical exam, lab tests or imaging tests[ii].

PID is usually caused by a variety of different bacteria: chlamydia, gonorrhoea or mycoplasma genitalium. In such cases, antibiotics are often used as treatment. Chlamydia trachomatis is the most common, accounting for 14–35% of cases[iii].

Risks for PID

Transmission of infections:

Multiple sexual partners/ A recent new partner

History of sexually transmitted diseases[iv]

Transmission of infection could also occur due to:

Termination of pregnancy

Recent insertion of an intrauterine device (IUD)

In vitro fertilization and intrauterine insemination[v].

Symptoms of PID include:

Pelvic and lower abdominal pain on both sides

Pain during sex

Abnormal vaginal bleeding/spotting (read more here)

Abnormal vaginal discharge

Painful period cramps (read more here)

Fever [vi]

Without treatment, PID can lead to serious problems like infertility and chronic pelvic pain (pain that does not go away). If you think you may have PID, see a doctor or nurse as soon as possible.
