Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) - Paragard IUD Complications

The greatest concern with IUDs remains the potential for infection. Present bacteria can be introduced into the uterus, fallopian tubes, or ovaries, leading to Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID). The risk of developing the affliction is higher in the first few weeks after the insertion of the contraceptive device.

Concerning the steps of diagnosing PID, the healthcare provider needs to investigate the patient’s medical history, conduct a pelvic exam, and culture samples of any bacteria. Further procedures may be required, from blood tests to more invasive ones, like endometrial biopsy or laparoscopy.

This medical condition must be treated instantly, as it can induce serious complications, such as permanent damage to parts of the reproductive system, chronic pain, and even infertility.

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease Symptoms and Treatment

It is not uncommon to not even realize the presence of PID at first, because of mild and inconspicuous symptoms that are usually disregarded. However, most reactions occur abruptly and heavily, including:

  • Stomach and lower abdomen pain
  • Atypical vaginal discharge
  • Nausea and vomiting
  • Pain during intercourse
  • Pain while urinating
  • Fever or chills
  • Irregular menstrual cycle, spotting or cramping more than usual

A doctor will most commonly prescribe orally administered antibiotics to alleviate symptoms. Improvement in the physical state does not necessarily mean that the infection is cured. Medication effects need to be monitored.

In case that the symptoms do not pass and the treatment seems to be failing, administering medicine through an IV is the subsequent solution.

In rare circumstances, pelvic inflammatory disease is treated through surgery, only when all other methods are unsuccessful.

Prompt diagnosis and treatment help cure PID, but all the damages already affecting the organs are irreversible.
