Hey now Sysy92,

Thanks for sharing. And you are right, PID is caused by more that STDs or STIs. In fact, the article above states, "With this condition, bacteria will travel up the vagina and infect organs located in the surrounding area. Reportedly, different kinds of bacteria may cause an infection, even normal vaginal bacteria is noted to bring about PID."

Thank you once again,

I wish someone would write about P.I.D not caused by stds. I've had P.I.D. twice, not caused by STDS or STI's. I am monogonous. Am not sexually promiscuous. have only had intercourse with 2 people. Once with my ex years ago, whom i lost my virginity to, and now with my bf of 2 1/2 years. It's great and all that people write about how P.I.D is most commonly caused by STDs..but what about the few of us that have had it a couple times that aren't caused by STDs. I'd like more info on that.
