Not at first: Pid is an ascending infection, beginning in the cervix and rising through the uterus to the fallopian tubes and out into the pelvic peritoneal cavity. Cervical culture screening catches many cases before any pain develops.

No.: Chlamydia and mycoplasma frequently are asymptomatic. Not as true, but also common with gonorrhea, and syphilis. This is why you do not want to get an std, since body damage can be ongoing, without knowing it.
