Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
  • Overview of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease
    • Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection of the woman’s reproductive organs caused by some sexually transmitted diseases (STDs) like chlamydia and gonorrhea. Symptoms of PID include pain in your lower abdomen, fever, pain or bleeding when you have sex, a burning sensation when you urinate, and bleeding in between periods. However, you can reduce your risk of getting PID by using latex condoms and practicing monogamy. If you have questions about PID treatment, contact your physician or make an appointment at the Student Health Services here.
