Pelvic Inflammatory Disease Treatment in Delhi | Causes & Diagnosis

Pelvic inflammatory disease/disorder is the disease of the reproductive organs present in the pelvic region such as the uterus, ovaries, or fallopian tubes. This disorder is caused due to sexually transmitted bacteria that enter and spread through the vagina. The signs and symptoms of this disease are mild and unrecognized until complications such as chronic pelvic pain, trouble getting pregnant, ectopic pregnancy, or abscess (collection of pus) develop.

These infections can cause scarring, blockage of fallopian tubes, affect the endometrium that can cause infertility problems in women having PID.

Signs and symptoms to be checked for PID

Some of the symptoms of pelvic inflammatory diseases are:

  • Pelvic pain and lower abdominal pain (even mild pain)
  • Heavy discharge from the vagina with an unpleasant odour
  • Abnormal uterine bleeding in between menstruation
  • Pain and unusual bleeding during or after intercourse
  • Sometimes fever with chills
  • Painful and frequent urination
  • Nausea and vomiting

Causes of pelvic inflammatory diseases

Causes are mainly attributed to bacterial infections like:

  • Gonorrhea or chlamydia infections are the most common bacterial infection causing PIDs. These infections enter and spread during unprotected intercourse.
  • In very rare conditions, bacteria can enter the reproductive organs through the insertion of intrauterine devices (IUD) or any other medical procedures involving insertions of instruments into the vagina.

However, conditions such as having multiple sex partners, unprotected intercourse, and medical history of PID can increase the risks of pelvic inflammatory diseases.
