Hello. Thank you for writing.

Pelvic inflammatory disease, or PID, is an infection of the organs of a women's reproductive system. They include the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes, and cervix. It's usually caused by a sexually transmitted infection (STI), like chlamydia or gonorrhea, and is treated with antibiotics. Having unprotected sex with someone who has an STI can cause PID.

The more sexual partners a woman has, the greater her risk of being exposed to infections which cause PID. Women are also at greater risk if their sexual partner has sex with other partners without using a condom. Women who have more than one partner or a partner who has not been tested for STIs should use condoms as they greatly reduce the risk of contracting an infection during sex.
