    hello,pelvic inflammatory disease is a reproductive tract infection affecting women.its usually a STI. causes fever,lower abdominal pain,vaginal discharge etc.it must be treated as it can lead to infertility by blocking the uterine tubes.Its risk factors include multiple sex partners,previous episode of the disease,douching,use of tampons etc.it is treated with combination if antibiotics such as ciprofloxacin,doxycycline,metronidazole used for at least 10-14days.see a doctor for prescription.u avoid the risk factors for prevention.
