Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection of the reproductive organs in women. Several types of bacteria can cause PID, including the same bacteria that cause sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as gonorrhea and chlamydia.
Signs and symptoms of pelvic inflammatory disease might include:
- Pain in your lower abdomen and pelvis.
- Heavy vaginal discharge with an unpleasant odor.
- Abnormal uterine bleeding, especially during or after intercourse, or between menstrual cycles.
The bacteria that cause PID can spread through sexual contact. If you are sexually active, your partner should also get treated for PID. Men may be silent carriers of bacteria that cause pelvic inflammatory disease. Your infection can recur if your partner doesn’t receive treatment.
Untreated PID can result in long term complications including infertility, ectopic pregnancy, chronic pelvic pain, and cancer. The disease is caused by bacteria that spread from the vagina and cervix.
Repeated episodes of PID greatly increase your risk of not being able to get pregnant. It’s estimated that one in five women with PID has fertility problems.
