What Are the Complications & Risks of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)?


Complications

Timely treatment of the bacterial infections that lead to PID can prevent most complications. If PID is allowed to progress, it can cause permanent scarring of the fallopian tubes, which can lead to:

  • Ectopic (tubal) pregnancies
  • Infertility
  • Persistent pelvic pain

Partners and Re-infection
