As discussed in response to your several other questions, you clearly have an unusual and complex problem. Whether or not your problems are classified as PID is irrelevant, since you have been treated (twice) as appropriate and recommended for PID. Not all PID is sexually acquired, in case that makes a difference. Infection/inflammation after embedded IUD can be considered a form of PID.
