Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection that occurs in a woman’s reproductive organs. However, one of the common complications of PID is pelvic adhesions.
In other words, untreated PID causes scar tissue to develop between internal organs; such as the uterus, fallopian tubes, and/or the ovaries. Which can result in pelvic pain and the possibility of an ectopic pregnancy.
Commonly, people don’t know they have pelvic inflammatory disease in its earlier stages. PID often doesn’t show any symptoms, or the symptoms are so mild you don’t feel them, especially when you first get the infection.
The longer you have PID, the worse the symptoms tend to get. PID, if left untreated, can lead to major health issues, including death.
Read and learn more about the complications of pelvic inflammatory disease, its causes, prevention, and particularly the treatment of pelvic adhesions and how to cure PID.
More About Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)?
As said earlier, it is an infection of a woman’s reproductive organs. Some sexually transmitted illnesses (STDs), such as chlamydia and gonorrhea, can cause this problem.
However, PID are also caused by other infections that are not sexually transmitted. Although, sex may let bacteria enter the reproductive system, where they can infect the organs.
Adhesions from Pelvic inflammatory disease are associated with localized pain, fever, and even a malodorous vaginal discharge.
The following are the most common symptoms of PID. Note that, each individual may experience symptoms differently.
- Pain ranging from mild to severe in your lower abdomen and pelvis
- Unusual or heavy vaginal discharge that may have an unpleasant odor
- Unusual bleeding from the vagina, especially during or after sex, or between periods
- Pain during sex
- Fever, sometimes with chills
- Painful, frequent or difficult urination
Also, symptoms may be mild enough that the condition goes undiagnosed. The symptoms of the pelvic inflammatory disease may resemble other conditions or medical problems. Always consult your physician for a diagnosis.
Who is at Risk of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease?
The majority of people contract PID through unprotected sex, although 15% of infections are not sexually transmitted. Sex may let bacteria enter the reproductive system, where they can infect the organs.
You face a higher risk for pelvic inflammatory disease if you;
- have an STD and do not get treated
- have more than one sex partner
- a sex partner who has sex partners other than you
- had PID before
- have are sexually active and are age 25 or younger
- Use an intrauterine device (IUD) for birth control. However, the small increased risk is mostly limited to the first three weeks after the IUD is placed inside the uterus by a doctor.
What Causes Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)?
Pelvic inflammatory disease is caused by a type of bacteria, often the same type that is responsible for several sexually transmitted diseases, such as gonorrhea and chlamydia.
These bacteria are passed from the vagina, through the cervix, into the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries, and into the pelvis.
Normally, when bacteria enter the vagina, the cervix keeps them from spreading deeper to other reproductive organs. But sometimes, the cervix becomes infected from an STI like gonorrhea and chlamydia. When that happens, it’s less able to keep bacteria out.
Untreated gonorrhea and chlamydia cause about 90% of PID cases. Other causes include:
- Pelvic procedures
- Insertion of an intrauterine device (IUD), either copper or hormonal. The risk is highest in the few weeks after insertion. Many times this type of infection is preventable with STI testing around the time of IUD placement.
Complications of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
An untreated pelvic inflammatory disease can cause scar tissue and pockets of infected fluid (abscesses) to develop in the reproductive tract. These can cause permanent damage to the reproductive organs.
Consequently, these scar tissues form between the internal organs leading to pelvic adhesions. If still left untreated, infertility can develop. In fact, PID is currently the leading cause of female infertility.
Other complications from this damage might include:
- Ectopic pregnancy :
- Chronic pelvic pain
- Tubo-ovarian abscess
If PID is not diagnosed early enough, peritonitis and inflammation of the walls of the abdominal and pelvic cavity may develop. So, it is better to treat PID early to avoid any complications.
On the contrary, you have to be aware that treating PID late won’t undo any damage that has already happened to your reproductive system.
Now, the focus is on pelvic adhesions, which is one of the complications of pelvic inflammatory disease.

Can Pelvic Inflammatory Disease be Cured?
Yes, if PID is diagnosed early, it can be treated. However, if it has already caused damage to the reproductive system, like such complications listed above.
Then, you will have to treat PID alongside the damage because treatment won’t undo any damage that has already happened to your reproductive system.
Hence, the longer you wait to get treated, the more likely it is that you will have complications from PID.
While taking treatment, your symptoms may go away before the infection is cured. Even if symptoms go away, you should finish taking all of your medicine. Be sure to tell your recent sex partner(s), so they can get tested and treated for STDs, too.
It is also very important that you and your partner both finish your treatment before having any kind of sex so that you don’t re-infect each other.

Can I Prevent PID?
Sometimes, PID is not due to a sexually transmitted infection. It can come from normal vaginal bacteria traveling to your reproductive organs. Avoiding douching may lower the risk.
Most of the time, though, PID happens because of unprotected sex. Take steps to practice safe sex. Protect yourself from sexually transmitted infections (STIs) that can cause PID:
- Limit sexual partners: Your risk increases if you have multiple partners.
- Choose barrier methods of birth control: These types of birth control include condoms and diaphragms. Combine a barrier method with spermicide, even if you take birth control pills.
- Seek treatment if you notice symptoms: If you notice signs of PID or other STIs, get treatment right away. Symptoms include unusual vaginal discharge, pelvic pain, or bleeding between periods.
- Get regular checkups: Have regular gynecological exams and screenings. Often, providers can identify and treat cervical infections before they spread to reproductive organs.
