You need to be referred to a gynaecologist to see if they will do a diagnostic laparoscopic to rule out PID. I was diagnosed with chronic PID, but they didn't find the source until a later laparoscopic because it was loculated and hidden behind my uterus.

Hopefully your problems will turn out to be muscle strain, but you should insist on seeing a gynaecologist too. A mistake I made was not seeing someone when I was in the most pain.

Hope this helps.
