Hello Kennie,

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) is a serious complication of chlamydia and gonorrhea.

PID occurs when bacteria move upward from a woman's vagina or cervix into her reproductive organs, including the uterus and fallopian tubes. Many different organisms can cause PID, but many cases are associated with gonorrhea and chlamydia, two very common bacterial STDs.

I hope this clears up your confusion.
