What is pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)? Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is an infection of a woman’s pelvic organs. The pelvic organs include the uterus (womb), fallopian tubes, ovaries and cervix. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) means the infection or inflammation of upper genital tract i.e. the ovary, the fallopian tubes and the uterus. It is generally seen in young sexually active females. What causes pelvic inflammatory disease? A woman can get PID when bacteria moves up through her vagina and infects her pelvic organs. Many different types of bacteria can cause PID. But, most of the time PID are caused by bacteria that cause 2 common sexually transmitted infections (STIs) — gonorrhea and chlamydia. It can take from a few days to a few months for an infection to travel up from the vagina to the pelvic organs. You can get pelvic inflammatory disease without having an STI. Normal bacteria found in the vagina and on the cervix can sometimes cause pelvic inflammatory disease.
