I was just diagnosed today. I've had pelvic pain before off and on but it has been extremely bad this past week. When I went to the ER today, they figured it out. However, PID is usually caused by something else. I was tested for STDs and they came back negative. Therefore, I may have endometriosis. I will have to go to the OR and the doctor will have to check internally to see if I do. I am in so much pain right now I could scream!
PID is pelvic inflammatory disease.
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a spectrum of infections of the female genital tract that includes endometritis, salpingitis, tuboovarian abscess, and peritonitis.
