How does PID cause the infertility?

Pelvic inflammatory disease, commonly called PID, is the primary preventable cause of infertility in women. The more often a woman gets PID, the greater her risk of becoming infertile. Recurrent episodes of PID can result in scarring of the fallopian tubes, which can lead to infertility, ectopic (tubal) pregnancy, or chronic pelvic pain. Infertility occurs in about one in eight women who have PID. In addition, a large proportion of ectopic (tubal) pregnancies that occur each year can be linked to PID. The rate of infection is highest among teenagers. 


PID is a bacterial infection of the uterus, fallopian tubes and other female reproductive organs that affects more than one million American women each year. It can cause irreversible damage to the fallopian tubes resulting in scarring, an increased risk of ectopic pregnancy (pregnancy anywhere outside the uterus and typically within the fallopian tube), abscess formation, chronic pelvic pain, and infertility. PID causing endometritis, salpingitis, tubo-ovarian abscess and peritonitis in the small pelvis may contribute in tubal infertility. In most cases the infection is ascending, Tubal blockage is a common cause of infertility among women. Basic understanding of the factors associated with female infertility is very important in clinical practice as well as in successful management. PID can cause infertility by producing scarring that damages or blocks the fallopian tubes. If an egg released by the ovary can’t pass through the fallopian tubes, it can’t get to the uterus to be fertilized.
It is good to know PID is completely preventable. But how can you prevent future attacks of PID and the infertility that it can potentially cause? If it’s not clear whether your sexual partner or partners are free of these infections, always use a condom during sexual intercourse to prevent another episode of PID. And make sure your sexual partners have been treated for STDs. If you and your partner want to have kids and you are having trouble getting pregnant. You may need to have special testing to see if your tubes have been scarred by PID. If they have, there are surgical procedures that may help. Finally, in vitro fertilization can be an answer for infertility due to scarring from PID.
For women who are struggling with getting pregnant because of PID, there is no need to get panic or desperate. There are options like surgery or antibiotics to try. Most people from western countries are not familiar with Chinese herbal medication but it is the best solution there is. Chinese herbal medication - Fuyan Pill are getting more and more popular as a treatment for PID because it has remarkable treating effect but no side effect.
