In brief: Pelvic inflamatory d

Pid is caused by micro-organisms colonizing the endocervix ascending to the endometrium ( lining of inside of uterus) and fallopian tubes.
It is a clinical diagnosis implying that the patient has upper genital tract infection and inflammation. If your ovaires and tubes were removed at the time of surgery a pid cannot occur. Infection ascends through the cervix.
