If a woman has been diagnosed with pelvic inflammatory disease, what can happen to her sexual partner as a result of this? I am a male whose sexual partner was recently diagnosed with pelvic inflammatory disease. What is pelvic inflammatory disease? Is it
Pelvic. Pelvic inflammatory disease (pid) is a serious infection of the uterus and/or fallopian tubes most often caused by chlamydia or gonorrhea - both sexually transmitted diseases. If she was diagnosed with pid, there is a very good chance that you are infected with chlamydia, gonorrhea or both. You should see your doctor to be checked and treated as soon as possible. I have attached a website below that has really good information about pid.
Uncertain. It is estimated that three-quarters of a million cases are diagnosed each year, but many cases so diagnosed may have pain due to other causes. Conversely, a lot of evidence of PID at laparoscopy is found in persons who were unaware they had the problem.
1 in 4 are infected! This both true and sad. Chlamydial infections frequently have no symptoms, but cause scarring of the fallopian tubes with secondary infertility. 26 percent of single women are infected, ages 20-28. Most other infections cause pain and lower pelvic or abdominal discomfort. All should be treated quickly to avoid sequalae.
Just told that I may have pelvic inflammatory disease. I've had the symptoms for 4 years. Anyway to get it besides sexually transmitted?
90% CAUSED BY STDs. 90% of pids are caused by stds but other 10% can be caused by abortion, child birth and pelvic procedures.
