PID is the swelling of lower part of abdomen below umbilicus. the upper part of the female organs namely the uterus, Fallopian tubes and ovaries are mainly involved. A constant mild tenderness( pain on pressure or touch) is the main symptom. Many women don’t know they have PID because they don’t have any major symptoms except mild tenderness on lower abdomen. Women who have suffering long with PID have many mild to severe grade of symptoms. The most common symptom of PID is pain in your lower abdomen (below umblicus). Other symptoms include:
- Fever (100.4 F or higher ( in acute infective stage)
- vaginal discharge that may be foul smelling
- Painful sex
- Pain or burning during urination
- irregular menstrual cycle
- Pain in the upper right abdomen
Pelvic inflammatory disease can come on fast with extreme pain and fever, especially if it’s caused by gonorrhea.
PID is called infectious disease (neisseria gonorrhea and Chlamydia trachomatis are the main causing agent) but you can get PID without having an sexually transmitted infection. Normal bacteria found in the vagina and on the cervix can sometimes cause PID. But no one is sure why this happens.
