Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Infection: PID is also known as pelvic inflammatory disease and causes a lot of pelvic pain and can be associated with a purulent vaginal discharge or bleeding and fever. Often the abdomen is very tender and you can have pain in the right upper quadrant because of inflammation around the liver ( Fitzhugh- Curtis syndrome). Hope this helps.
