Hello, I definatly think that I have the Pelvic Inflammitory Disease. However, my doctor hasnt diagnosed me even once yet and I've been to see her twice about it over the past months. I told her my symptoms and she has yet to do anything about it. Now tonight, it feels like a hot pain boiling in my low abdomen. I cannot sleep even though I want to. Thats how bad it bothers me. Do I go to a different doctor on monday (its fri now) or visit the ER tonight? :(

  • I would go to the emergency room tonight. PID can seriously affect your fertility if the infection is left to smolder.

  • I did go to the doctor the following Monday. He screened me for PID and found that he could find no evidance that PID was my problem. Apparently the pain or pressure that I have been feeling has been associated with a previous diagnosis. Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome. You can read more about it at this link.http://www.womentowomen.com/insulinresistance/pcos.asp?id=1&campaignno=pcos&adgroup=adgroup1&keywords=polycystic+ovarian+syndromeHe attributes the pressure from possible cysts. If after my period, he stated that it doesnt improve we can do an ultra sound to see if there is a necessity for further action.

  • Where are you at now where your condition? I have been diagnosed with PID, but I am skeptical that I have it. In October I had vaginitis and cystitis, was treated several times, and then in November I started experiencing acheing in my lower left abdomen area. Now I am occasionally getting stabbing pains. I have an appointment for laparoscopy surgery on December 28th. I feel as though it is not PID. But then again, PID can exist without any symptoms. It would help to hear about your experience. I hope you are better.
