Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)-Causes, Symptoms & Ayurvedic Treatment
Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a medical condition associated with many possible diseases. Three main groups of bacteria have been isolated from the genital tract of PID patients: highly infectious bacteria such as Neisseria gonorrhoeae, Chlamydia trachomatis, Mycoplasma genitalium and Trichomonas vaginalis; bacterial vaginosis (BV) This article explains the introduction, causes, signs, complications, and manifestations of PID and Ayurvedic treatment.
Pelvic inflammatory disease is an infection of the uterus, uterine tubes (Fallopian), ovaries, and adjacent pelvic organs. It is usually caused by a sexually transmitted infection such as Neisseria gonorrhoeae or Chlamydia trachomatis, which is the most common cause of PID. The diagnosis of pelvic inflammatory disease is usually clinical and should be considered in women with pain in the abdomen or pelvis and genitals. Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a condition associated with pregnancy, menstruation, and health conditions such as PID. Pelvic inflammatory Disease is diagnosed based on abdominal symptoms or abdominal pain and symptoms of cervical, adnexal, or uterine tenderness on examination.
CAUSES OF PID
Bacteria that enter the uterus can cause pelvic inflammatory disease. These bacteria leave the vagina and travel to the uterus, fallopian tubes and ovaries. Usually, when bacteria enter the genital area, the cervix prevents it from spreading to other organs. However, any infection can cause your cervix to become dysfunctional. Many types of bacteria can cause PID, but two types of bacteria that cause PID are gonorrhoea and chlamydia. You can get both infections from unprotected sex. These two STIs are responsible for approximately 90% of PID cases. When normal bacteria get into reproductive organs then PID occurs.
SIGNS OF PID
You may not even know you have a PID. Symptoms may be mild or vague. But PID symptoms can come on quickly. These may include:
- Pain or tenderness in the stomach or abdomen, which is the most common symptom.
- usually yellow or green vaginal discharge, with an unusual odour.
- chills or fever.
- nausea and vomiting.
- Dyspareunia (painful intercourse)
- Burning while urinating.
- Irregular menstruation or bleeding during the month.
The people who are at risk are as follows.
1. Increased Risk
- Young age (18-25 years)
- Multiple sexual partners
- IUD insertior
- Vaginal douching
2. Decreased Risk
- Barrier methods of contraception
- Tubal ligation
- Oral Contraceptives.
- Chronic Pelvic Pain
- Ectopic pregnancy
- Tubo-ovarian abscess
If anyone feels symptoms of this disease then you should consult your doctor soon. The sooner you get care, the better your chances of recovery.
- The doctor will ask about your medical history, including your general health, sexual activity and symptoms.
- To feel tenderness or abscesses (collection of pus), a pelvic exam is done to examine your reproductive organs. (Physical examination)
- To test your vaginal discharge for certain bacteria, vaginal culture is done.
- Testing for STIs
- Urine test to see the urinary tract infection, which causes similar pelvic pain.
- USG to see clearer images of your reproductive system.
- Pregnancy tests are also performed to take the necessary precautions to protect the child in the womb from the negative effects of the disease.
- Fallopian tube thickening > 5 mm, with wall increase: high specificity of 95%.
- Non-contrast fluid is contained in a Douglas bag (cul-de-sac).
AYURVEDIC OVERVIEW OF PID
There is no explanation in Ayurveda for any condition that directly explains pelvic inflammatory disease. But in this article, I will try to compare some cases mentioned in Ayurveda that are similar to PID. The purpose of this comparison is to list the Ayurvedic Treatment for PID, trying to see the situation from an Ayurvedic perspective. The symptoms of PID can be said to fall into the following conditions (according to Ayurveda)
- Vata dushti– Vata’s vitiation and damage.
- Pitta dushti– Pitta’s vitiation and damage caused, especially inflammation and burning, fever, genital abnormality and discharge etc.
- Vata-Pitta Dushti– A decrease in both Vata and Pitta where the above symptoms are associated with both Vata and Pitta decline.
- Apana Vata Dushti– Vitiation of lower Vayu which controls the functions of the lower functions of the body, i.e. Apana Vata.

It is important to make women aware of and understand PID and its symptoms because early detection can reduce the risk of serious complications. PID is an important health problem in the developed or developing world. PID remains a difficult disease to recognize and treat, as many are asymptomatic. Screening for chlamydia and gonorrhoea in all sexually active women under the age of 25 and older women with high-risk behaviours is an important strategy to determine if they are at risk for PID and to start treatment early. About 20% of women with PID will be infertile, 40% will be chronically ill, and 1% of pregnant women will experience an ectopic pregnancy.
