Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection of the organs of the female reproductive system, including the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and cervix.

Several different types of bacteria can cause PID, including the same bacteria that cause sexually transmitted infections (STIs), gonorrhea, and chlamydia.

What commonly occurs is that the bacteria enter the vagina first and cause an infection. As time passes, this infection can move to the pelvic organs.

If left untreated, pelvic inflammatory disease can cause serious fertility complications; actually, it is the leading cause of preventable infertility in women.

PID can be the result of complications from a number of sexually transmitted infections, so you should seek treatment as soon as you notice any of the following symptoms.

1. Lower abdominal or pelvic pain

It is normal to feel some pain in the lower abdomen during the menstrual cycle, but the pain caused by pelvic inflammatory disease is much more aggressive and noticeable than regular menstrual cramps. If you experience severe cramping or shooting pain in your lower abdomen or pelvis, see your gynecologist right away, especially if you are not on your period.

2. Vaginal discharge with an odor

Small amounts of clear vaginal discharge are normal, but if you notice an excessive amount of discharge accompanied by an unusual odor, it could be a symptom of pelvic inflammatory disease. You may not experience concomitant pelvic pain if the infection has not yet reached the uterus through the cervix.

Detecting the symptoms of pelvic inflammatory disease before they reach your reproductive organs is the best way to prevent permanent infertility. If you notice heavy vaginal discharge and an accompanying odor, see your gynecologist.

3. Painful urination

Painful urination is usually a symptom of a bladder infection. If left untreated, a bladder infection can get worse and travel to the uterus or ovaries, causing pelvic inflammatory disease. If you feel painful urination, your gynecologist will most likely test your urine for an infection. Be sure to communicate with your gynecologist about your pain level. Extreme pain when urinating is a classic symptom of PID and may need to be treated with a stronger round of antibiotics than a simple bladder infection.

4. Fever

A fever over 101 degrees is a sign that your body is fighting an infection. If your fever lasts for more than a few days, see your doctor to evaluate your symptoms. A high fever does not always indicate PID. However, if your fever is accompanied by pelvic pain or vaginal discharge, it is a strong indication that you are experiencing the symptoms of PID.

5. Pain during sexual intercourse

If you feel pain during intercourse, especially if it is a recent development, it may be an indication of pelvic inflammatory disease. You may also have a bladder or yeast infection, or the area has become irritated from frequent or vigorous sexual activity. Infections can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease if left untreated.

If you catch pelvic inflammatory disease early, it can be treated with a simple round of antibiotics. Don’t let your symptoms go unchecked or your pelvic inflammatory disease could leave you sterile and cause long-term health problems. When you notice any of these common PID symptoms, make an appointment with your gynecologist as soon as possible.

6. Bleeding between periods

Bleeding between periods is not a normal part of the menstrual cycle. Normal vaginal bleeding, also known as your period, can occur for a few days to a week.

Vaginal bleeding between periods may indicate an infection of your reproductive organs caused by PID.
