Pelvic inflammatory disease
It is an infection that affects the uterus, fallopian tubes, ovaries and adjacent organs in the pelvic region such as the intestine.
Symptoms include lower abdominal pain, often bilateral, with fever and malodorant vaginal discharge.
Diagnosis is based on medical history, physical examination, blood tests and smears taken from the vagina and cervix. The vaginal ultrasound is very important and helpful and it can show pus collection.
