Can the bacteria in uti cause pid or pelvic inflammatory disease? After having laparoscopy very recently, I was diagnosed of having evidence of pid. But how did I get it?, the possible causes of pid doesn't apply in my lifestyle as I did not had std, nor multiply partners, i'm very cautious in using toilets.
Some months ago, my husband was having difficulty in urinating and in some occasion it had traces of blood (urine is somehow reddish in color). I am very confident that my husband does not have outside sexual relation, so my guess is that the problem could be caused by uti though it is still yet to confirm as he does not like to go to doctors (not only in this issue but whatever help issue from stomach pain to dental, he dosn't like or lazy to see doctors).
If not from uti, wherelse did I get my pid?
I'm so confussed. I'll be grateful to hear from you...
Sounds like possible lack of sterile procedure either during or after the laparoscopy or possibly it entered through say kidney or vaginal or urinary tract infection - certainly some of these could have been thanks to your husband having an infection (doesn't have to be due to sex with another person).
I suggest you insist on blood & urine tests for all possible causes & x-rays etc if the pain is that bad or if there are other symptoms.
sorry to hear that you have been suffering same as I am at moment.
As far as I know, yes a urine infection, if not treated properly, can cause p.I.D. The bacteria travel higher up the genital tract and can effect the ovaries, uterus and fallopian tubes and even bowel, etc.
I am 41 yrs old and only sexually active with husband. We hv both been tested for std (which apparently is routine) and are both negative.
I suspect that mine is from a i.U.D (coil) that I had for two years. I was fine prior to this. I had a lap feb 03 which showed lots of scar tissue and adhesions and also acute inflammation but no endo. I have had many courses of anti-biotics which helped to a degree but symptoms have always returned.
Having another lap 16th aug, and if pelvis is same as before with acute inflammation and no sign of endo. I may decide to have a hysterectomy, as I am totally fed up and now want my life back.
When you had your lap did the gynae take a biopsy to see what had caused the infection? This is what I am having done this time.
