Why all this fuss about PID? What is the big deal about it?
It is important because it can lead to infertility or damage to a woman's tubes; this damage may lead to an ectopic pregnancy, which is a pregnancy located in the wrong place.
But before this happens, a woman may feel the following symptoms:
Lower abdominal or pelvic pain
There may be vaginal discharge
Hotness of her body
She may feel like vomiting or actually vomit .
If you suspect you have PID, you have to see a doctor for confirmation.
The doctor will want to know what symptoms you have, he will also want to do some examination.
He will check your temperature as well as examine your abdomen, he may also do a pelvic examination looking for any areas of tenderness,
All these may be enough to make the doctor reach a diagnosis, if not he may want to do some tests like an ultrasound or use a special instrument to view the pelvis.
See a doctor, you can be sure of confidentiality. Join me tomorrow as we talk about how to prevent PID.
