Our expert says:
It sounds like you had PID as the initial cause for the pain, as it improved quite quickly with antibiotics. PID can cause damage to the pelvic organs and this can give rise to chronic pain and also the congetsive symptoms you describe. One option would be a long course of antibiotics, fo a month or so. This should include Doxycycline. The other option might be a trial of progesterone treatment as this is the treatment for pelvic congestion syndrome.
