Your Risk for PID Is Higher, If You've Had a STD
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID), is an infection of a woman’s reproductive organs. In 2013, about 88,000 women ages 15 to44 in the United States were diagnosed with PID. PID is often caused by a sexually transmitted infection (STI). If left untreated, PID can cause problems getting pregnant, problems during pregnancy, and long-term pelvic pain.
