Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a common infection with symptoms that can be mild, and are easily overlooked. It’s caused by bacteria passing through the vagina to the uterus (womb) and fallopian tubes, where it causes infection and inflammation. 

It’s important to know the symptoms, as untreated PID can can damage the fallopian tubes and tissues around the the uterus and ovaries. Complications of PID include infertility, ectopic pregnancy, abscesses and chronic pelvic pain.
