Pelvic Inflammatory disease (PID) is an inflammation of the reproductive organs (genital tract) of a woman that is usually spread during sexual intercourse with a partner who’s already infected with PID or gonorrhea. It is a serious complication of sexually transmitted disease that can cause an irreparable damage to the ovaries and other female reproductive organs. The condition is generally contracted when a bacteria enters the cervix and spreads to the internal organs including upper genital tract. When caught in early stages, the infection can be treated with antibiotic ceftriaxone along with doxycycline. Untreated PID can cause severe complications like cancer, ectopic pregnancy, or infertility.
