Welcome to disease section for pelvic inflammatory disease

 


Pelvic inflammatory disease is a type of infection that affects a woman’s reproductive organs, including the uterus, the ovaries, and the two fallopian tubes. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) in pregnancy can result in various complications like ectopic pregnancies, premature births, stillbirths, etc. Ectopic pregnancies can rupture the fallopian tubes resulting in internal bleeding and may even cause death.

PID can lead to infertility because of the bacterial infection that damages the fallopian tubes and obstructs eggs as they attempt to travel through the fallopian tubes for fertilization. If a woman has untreated PID for a longer time, it is likely that she will experience fertility complications.
