In brief: PID
Salpingitis is an inflammation of the fallopian tubes and uterus, also known as pid or pelvic inflammatory disease.
This is most commonly caused by chlamydia and is generally a sexually transmitted disease. This can cause a lot of pain and, if not treated, permanent scaring that can lead to infertility and/or ectopic pregnancy. See you doc right away if this is you!
