Lmp aug 14 for 4 days. Last intercourse aug 12. Period was unusual. Pain in rectum and vagina. Diagnosed pid. Could this be mistaken for pregnancy?

Probably not: With your last period being unusual for you it is possible you are pregnant but not very likely. However you can check a pregnancy test to be sure. It is common for a woman with pid to have unusual bleeding and more pain than usual. If it is pid then the pain should start improving as you take antibiotics.
