PID, or pelvic inflammatory disease, refers to infections in the uterus, fallopian tubes, or ovaries, mainly caused by sexually transmitted infection (STI). PID usually gets transmitted through sexual intercourse. Checking abdominal discomfort and unusual discharge helps in the diagnosis of pelvic inflammatory disease. Further, if you have health insurance, thorough pelvic tests become easily accessible, ensuring timely discovery and treatment of such conditions.

What is the Diagnosis of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease?

Medical professionals perform several tests and procedures to detect and confirm the presence of PID. The following comprise the crucial steps:

  • A medical history examination is needed to diagnose PID correctly and quickly. This evaluation reviews reported symptoms, sexual activity, and overall health.
  • A pelvic exam helps in the diagnosis of PID by looking for discomfort or abscesses in the reproductive organs.
  • Vaginal culture tests help diagnose PID by identifying certain bacteria in discharge.
  • Blood and urine tests are performed to evaluate general health and rule out illnesses linked to PID-like symptoms.
  • Ultrasound imaging is conducted to obtain a more precise view of the reproductive system, which assists in the diagnosis of PID.
  • Screening for sexually transmitted infections (STIs) associated with PID is conducted to enable thorough evaluation for an accurate diagnosis.
  • An endometrial biopsy analyses uterine tissue to confirm and fine-tune PID diagnosis.



Various tests and examinations need to be conducted to diagnose PID to enable accurate and immediate treatment. Health insurance makes it much easier to access necessary diagnostic tests such as imaging, pelvic examinations, and cultures. Health insurance plan makes possible the early diagnosis of PID, successful treatment, and avoidance of potential long-term problems that could affect reproductive health.
