It is important that we do what we can to keep us safe from pathogens. They are everywhere, and even the strongest of people are not completely immune to them. If they are able to get inside the body, then they can begin to proliferate and our immune system may not be able to cope.

Most of the female reproductive organs are tucked away deep inside the body. Here, they are relatively safe from harm, but that does not mean to say bacteria and other pathogens can’t get to them. These organs are prone to developing infections, and these infections can sometimes be dangerous. Pelvic inflammatory disease is one example of such a disease.

1. Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a condition that affects women only. It usually happens when bacteria have managed to spread to the fallopian tubes, ovaries, or uterus from the vagina. The bacteria responsible are usually present after being transmitted during sexual intercourse.

Patients with the condition will often not be aware of any symptoms and, when symptoms do arise, they are usually only mild. The condition will often go unnoticed, at least until other symptoms arise as a result. The condition is treatable, although it is advised to get treatment as soon as possible to help prevent complications from occurring.
