Pelvic inflammatory disease

So I have not long finished my antibiotics for PID and still feeling awful. I wanted to have a chat/support forum specifically for PID to find some comfort in talking to others.

Anyone out there?

Hi DM14,

I’m sorry you’re still feeling unwell. Are you feeling generally unwell or is there any pain? Is it possible you might need to have a second course of antibiotics? I would definitely book to see your GP or if you prefer you can attend a sexual health centre as they are the experts in treating PID event if it’s not related to sexual health. Some women although very low get it if they develop an infection after a mirena insertion although this isn’t very common.

I’d also look into probiotics as antibiotics also kill the good bacteria we need in our bodies. I’ve put a link on here which will take you to the nhs page. Some of the information will apply to you some won’t so please don’t be alarmed or worried by it.

nhs.uk/conditions/pelvic-in...

I’m hoping someone on here who has also had PID can come on here and give you some additional advice.

I hope this helps but keep on posting as this is a very common question

I did..I actually got PID from an iud that i had inserted a week or so prior to the hospital visits..also turns out i have PCS..pelvic congestion syndrome..there is no cure for that so I'm constantly in pain. Once you get PID you are more susceptible to further bouts of it too..

Yes, I’m currently on antibiotics for PID. I came on here looking for support forums too and there aren’t any specifically for PID.

I’m on day 4 of antibiotics for PID. Mine was triggered by a huge amount of internal intervention following a pregnancy loss. I get real pelvic pain in my bum too so was actually a bit reassured to read the above comment!

Did your dr concern and care about you for all this years? I hope you get better treatment :(

Did you follow any anti inflammatory diets?

I’m praying for you, may god ease your(everyone’s) pain too

Amen

I have seen various doctors... the one I have now seems to be the most understanding as she has endometriosis herself so can sympathise with pelvic pain.

Diets... I have done wheat free and gluten free but I am certain my issues is not affected by foods x
