What is Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID)?
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) refers to the genital tract infection. It involves the upper parts of the female reproductive system including all three organs or any one of uterus along cervix, fallopian tubes and ovaries. The infection is normally due to the sexually transmitted organism, which travels along the genital tract. An acute infection leads to chronic one that then progresses to PID. This ascending trait distinguishes this from other non-sexually transmitted infections.
