Causes of PIDs

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a group of pathologies characterized by the appearance of inflammation in the upper part of the female genital tract. It usually affects the fallopian tubes, ovaries and uterus.

The most common cause among women diagnosed with PID is usually a bacterial infection, although it can also be related to the presence of STDs, the insertion of an IUD for contraception, the performance of an endometrial biopsy or miscarriage.

In addition, changes in vaginal flora and childbirth can also be reasons for developing PID.
