Is PID caused by an abortion contagious or only PID caused by STDs such as chlamydia/ gonorrhea? And can it be treated if undiagnosed for a year?

In brief: No, yes and yes

post D&C inflammation or postoperative infections are not contagious, unless you have a pre-existing infection at the time of your surgery that was not treated.
