It can involve the vagina, uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries..
How long before chlamydia becomes PID?
Amongst the few mathematical modelling studies with explicit descriptions of progression from chlamydia infection to PID, it has been proposed that PID develops in the first half of a chlamydia infection, in the second half, or can occur at any time during a chlamydia infection .
How do you fully cure PID?
Your doctor or nurse will give you antibiotics to treat PID. Most of the time, at least two antibiotics are used that work against many different types of bacteria. You must take all of your antibiotics, even if your symptoms go away. This helps to make sure the infection is fully cured.
Does PID hurt all the time?
Pelvic inflammatory disease can cause pelvic pain that might last for months or years. Scarring in your fallopian tubes and other pelvic organs can cause pain during intercourse and ovulation.
Can you have PID for years and not know?

Can you have PID and be pregnant at the same time?
Getting pregnant with pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) can be challenging. However, women with the condition should not lose hope. With certain infertility treatments, women with PID can have the same chances of getting pregnant as those without the condition.
Can a man give a woman PID?
How is PID spread? Most commonly, the bacteria that cause PID are passed from a man to a woman during vaginal sex. Men can have an infection and not know it because they may not have any symptoms (discharge or burning on urination).
How long does it take for PID to cause damage?
Some people may develop signs and symptoms of PID after a few weeks, and for others in can take months. PID is usually diagnosed based on the symptoms a person is feeling (not how long their STI has been untreated). The most common symptoms of PID are: Pain in the lower abdomen, usually on both sides.
Can PID stop menstruation?
You contracted pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). As the infection spreads to the cells of the uterus, it can lead to problems with menstruation. The Office on Women’s Health lists irregular menstrual cycles (like late periods) as one of the symptoms of PID.
Is PID only sexually transmitted?
Pelvic inflammatory disease is an infection of a woman’s reproductive organs. It is a complication often caused by some STDs, like chlamydia and gonorrhea. Other infections that are not sexually transmitted can also cause PID.
Does PID affect your bowels?
The complications of PID can be very serious. If untreated, PID can turn into peritonitis—a life-threatening condition—or into a tubo-ovarian abscess. It can affect the bowels and the liver (causing perihepatitis syndrome).
What happens if PID is left untreated?
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection of a woman’s reproductive tract. It can affect the uterus, fallopian tubes, and/or the ovaries. Left untreated, chronic infection and infertility can develop. It is caused by bacteria, often the same type of bacteria that causes STDs.
Can you pass PID to your partner?
The bacteria that cause PID can spread through sexual contact. If you’re sexually active, your partner should also get treated for PID. Men may be silent carriers of bacteria that cause pelvic inflammatory disease. Your infection can recur if your partner doesn’t receive treatment.
