How to Get Rid of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

PID or pelvic inflammatory disease is the most serious side effect of STD’s or sexually transmitted diseases in women. It is an infection of the female reproductive organs and if left untreated can lead to irreversible damage to the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes and other parts of the reproductive system. It is the most common preventable cause of infertility. It occurs when the cervix, normally sealed tightly to prevent bacteria from spreading to the internal organs, is unable to seal completely due to infection and the bacteria travel from the cervix up into the upper reproductive organs.
