Our expert says:
It can be defined as:
"Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a bacterial infection of the female upper genital tract, including the womb, fallopian tubes and ovaries.
Most cases of PID are caused by an infection in the vagina or the neck of the womb (cervix) that has spread to the reproductive organs higher up.
Many different types of bacteria can cause PID, but most cases are the result of a chlamydia or gonorrhoea infection (see Causes for more information)."
