Can PID cause pain in kidneys?
PID can cause abdominal pain in women.
Although you may not have been diagnosed with acute PID while having an STD, you may have had "silent" infection and scarring that could cause chronic pelvic pain and inflammatory disease. Chlamydia and gonorrhea are the STDs that most often cause PID, but other, non-sexually transmitted bacteria can also cause PID. Talk to your health care provider for advice specific to your situation.
