Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection of the female reproductive organs. The pelvis is in the lower abdomen and comprised of the cervix, the fallopian tubes, the ovaries, and the uterus. This disease is mostly caused by bacteria from sexually transmitted infections. However, in some cases this infection is caused by normal bacteria found in the vagina.
The signs and symptoms of PID:
A lot of women mostly do not realize that they have Pelvic inflammatory disease, as they do not experience any signs or symptoms. Nevertheless, symptoms of PID can be mild or more serious and they mostly include:
- Lower abdomen pain
- High fever
- Vaginal discharge
- Pain while having sexual intercourse
- Painful urination
- Irregular menstruation cycle
- Pain in the upper right abdomen
Causes and risk factors of Pelvic inflammatory disease:
Though there are a number of bacteria that can cause PID, but chlamydia or gonorrhea infections are the most common among them. These bacteria are mostly transmitted during unprotected sexual intercourse.
Moreover, in very few cases, bacteria can enter your reproductive tract in case if the usual barrier created by the cervix is disturbed, which can happen after miscarriage, childbirth or abortion.
PID mostly affects the women in between 15 to 24 years old. However, the risk of getting PID is higher among those, who:
- have had an STI
- have had PID before
- are under 25 years of age and have sex.
- have multiple sexual partners
- Douche, as it can transmit bacteria into the reproductive organs.
- recently had an intrauterine device (IUD) inserted.
Diagnosis of pelvic inflammatory disease:
Doctors generally diagnose pelvic inflammatory disease on the basis of a number of factors that include – analyzing signs and symptoms, a pelvic exam, urine tests or by an examination of vaginal discharge and cervical cultures.
During the pelvic exam, firstly the doctors generally examine the pelvic region for signs and symptoms. After that, doctor may use cotton swabs to collect samples from the cervix and vagina. The samples will then be analyzed at a lab to verify the organism behind the infection.
Finally to confirm the diagnosis or to decide how widespread the infection is, the doctor may recommend you some other tests as well like blood and urine tests, ultrasound and laparoscopy.
Treatments for pelvic inflammatory disease:
Treatments for pelvic inflammatory disease mainly include:
• Antibiotics: Initially the doctor may prescribe a combination of antibiotics, which he might adjust after receiving your lab test results to better match with what’s causing the infection. A regular follow up session with your doctor is very important to make sure the treatment is working properly. However, antibiotics can help prevent severe complications but can’t reverse any damage.
The majority women with this disease only need outpatient treatment. Nevertheless, in case if you are very ill, pregnant or haven’t responded well to medications, you may need hospitalization.
In most of the cases, surgery is not very much necessary. However, one might need surgery if she doesn’t respond well to antibiotic medications or in case of a doubtful diagnosis, for instance, for those cases where one or more of the signs or symptoms of this disease are absent.
