Thanks for your reply.. But can "ONLY'' lower back pain be a sign/symptom of PID?

Hi Ranch

Thanks for your post!

PID is Pelvic Inflammatory Disease - you can read all about the signs and symptoms here, as well as the causes: http://www.empowher.com/sexual-well-being/content/female-reproductive-sy...

Douching is not good for your health, there is no reason for it and it badly affects the balance of your female organs and can cause PID.

But you have no diagnosis so you have to see a doctor to see what the pain is from - there could be any number of , , reasons for it. Don't diagnose yourself. At 17, you can go to a clinic by yourself, often for free!

Good luck and keep us posted!
