In brief: Condoms
Pid, pelvic inflammatory disease is usually caused by an infection.
The diagnosis is based on cultures, physical exam, and imaging studies such as pelvic ultrasound and cat scans. Left untreated, the damage can be permanent. Condoms are helpful but not fool proof. To be certain, have your partner tested before having sex.
