Pelvic Inflammatory disease

About P.I.D

Pelvic Inflammatory disease is an infection of a woman’s reproductive organs. It's an infection of the fallopian tubes and uterus. It develops when bacteria move from the vagina up into the upper reproductive organs. Many times, these bacteria are sexually transmitted, and STDs like gonorrhea and chlamydia may lead to PID. If PID is diagnosed early, it can be treated. However, treatment won’t undo any damage that has already happened to your reproductive system.You can also get PID again if you get infected with an STD again. If you have had PID before, you have a higher chance of getting it again.

Symptoms

Women symptoms: Pain in your lower abdomen, fever, an unusual discharge with a bad odor from your vagina, pain and/or bleeding when you have sex, burning sensation when you urinate, or bleeding between periods.

Men’s symptoms: Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) doesn't affect men because it's an infection of the Fallopian tubes and uterus. It develops when bacteria move from the vagina up into the upper reproductive organs.
