Is PID associated with cervical or other cancers? Does PID cause cancer, or are women who already have cancer likely to develop PID?
Not really: These are not really related conditions. PID is caused by bacteria from the vagina ( or sexually transmitted bacteria) getting up the cervix into the uterus and tubes and setting up an infection. This isn't really related to cancer at all. The only exception is that very severe cancers can cause necrosis of tissue which can mimic infection in many ways. ...Read more

Is PID something that just stays down in the female parts, or does it spread to the rest of your body?
Can a female or male have chlamdyia for a year and a half and not know about it? What's the chances of a female developing PID in that time?
Likely: If you mean, can a woman had pid that was treated get pregnant in the future, the answer is likely yes. Often if the first episode of pid is treated soon with antibiotics there may be no scarring of the tubes. However the more times a woman has pid the more likely the tubes are scarred, increasing the chance of infertility and ectopic pregnancy. Once pregnant get checked to r/o ectopic. ...Read more
If a woman was treated of PID and still having a little itch on her private part what should be done.?
Get recultured: Get recultured, and get treated for yeast, that is most likely causing the symptoms after all the antibiotics you've been treated with. There are now some bacteria that are resistant to regular antibiotics that were used for pid treatment, so if you have some itching it would be wise to take new culture as well as to do wet mount and koh, but more likely than not it is jus simple yeast infection. ...Read more

Treat Immediately: Treat pid as soon as it is diagnosed. There is nothing in the literature that mentions how long pid can go untreated without complications. I would guess if untreated, depending on the specifics (infecting organism, extent of infection, patient's immunologic response etc.) the complications may already be in place at diagnosis or within a few days of diagnosis. Get treated immediately. Good luck! ...Read more

PID can be sexually : Pid( pelvic inflammatory disease) is a result of vaginal infection tracking up into the uterus ( womb) and then into the fallopian tubes, resulting in spread of infection into the pelvic cavity- hence called pelvic inflammatory disease.Infection with gonorrhea is a classical example. However many other bacteria can cause the same problem. Full course of treatment should be followed. Zk. ...Read more
Why do my pelvic exams hurt so much? I am a 19 year old female, sexually active but safe, and on the nuvaring. I was diagnosed with PID about two months ago and was treated, but once symptoms started to show again i scheduled another appointment. I had ne
Unfortunately, : Unfortunately, gynecological exams aren't necessarily very comfortable for anyone! that being said, pid can make your cervix and uterus extra sensitive thus making the exam extremely painful. Actually, one of the symptoms of pid is a very painful exam - so don't think that every exam will feel like that! this should resolve once the infection is treated. One of the other most common reasons for pain with exam is that your muscles around the opening of your vagina might be very tense. Since your first experience with an exam was during pid, you may be unconsciously tensing your muscles from the memory of how bad it hurt before. By practicing relaxation techniques such as breathing deeply or trying to relax your legs in the stirrups during the exam may help with the discomfort. Also, discuss this with your doctor. You are not the first, nor the last woman to have this exact problem. Your doctor may have other helpful suggestions to make your exams more comfortable. ...Read more

Yes: Bleeding or spotting early in pregnancy is never normal although bleeding doesn't always mean an abnormal pregnancy. You should be seen by your doctor soon to assess the location and status of your pregnancy. Miscarriages, infections, and ectopic pregnancies need to be ruled out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
PID and STDs: Chlamydia/gonorrhea are two sexually transmitted bacterial infections that can result in pid if not treated. Chlamydia causes tube injury at a slower rate than gonorrhea. Nonetheless, any patient who thinks she may have been infected should seek testing. Testing is easy to perform and painless. Pid may lead to infertility, chronic pelvic pain or tubal pregnancy. Remember, protection= safe sex! ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Can non chlamidial ngu cause pid in female partner. Gonorrhoea, chlamidia, mycoplasma genitalium, ureaplsama , trich all negative. No std found. ?
Probably not: Neither PID nor any other health problem has ever been documented in the sex partners of men with NGU not due to chlamydia or M. genitalium. Does your partner have PID, or are you just worried concerned about it? If the latter, my advice is to not worry. If PID is suspected, she of course should see her doctor or perhaps an NHS GUM clinic. Otherwise nothing need be done. ...Read more
