Pelvic Inflamatory Disease (PID) Symptoms

Some people with PID do not experience any symptoms. If you do have symptoms, they could be severe.

The most common symptoms of PID include:

  • Pain in the lower abdomen or pelvis
  • Vaginal discharge with abnormal color, consistency, or odor
  • Fever (not always present; may come and go)

Other nonspecific symptoms of PID may include:
  • Irregular menstrual bleeding or spotting
  • Increased menstrual cramping
  • Absent menstruation
  • Increased pain during ovulation
  • Painful sexual intercourse
  • Bleeding after intercourse
  • Low back pain
  • Fatigue
  • Lack of appetite
  • Nausea, with or without vomiting
  • Chills
  • Frequent urination
  • Pain with urination
  • Tenderness

PID with no symptoms is especially common when the infection is due to chlamydia. PID with sudden, extreme pain and fever is usually due to gonorrhea.
