What are the symptoms of PID?
There are many symptoms of PID. These symptoms include pain or cramps in your lower abdomen, a fever, an unusual discharge or foul odor from your vagina, pain or bleeding after sex, a burning sensation when you have sex, or bleeding between menstrual cycles. If you think you have PID, you need to see a doctor immediately. PID can lead to long-term effects like infertility, chronic abdominal or pelvic pain, and ectopic pregnancy.

To lower your chances of contracting PID, practice safe sex and use condoms every time. Additionally, get yourself tested regularly for STDs if you have multiple sexual partners.
