What is PID?
Pelvic inflammatory disease targets your reproductive organs and is usually triggered by another type of infection in the body or a sexually transmitted disease (STD). This includes untreated cases of gonorrhea and chlamydia. The bacteria responsible for the STD spreads from your vagina to your uterus, ovaries, or fallopian tubes. It’s a serious medical condition, and one in eight women with a history of pelvic inflammatory disease has difficulty conceiving.
