Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is a term for inflammation of the uterus, fallopian tubes and/or ovaries as it
progresses to scar formation with adhesions to nearby tissues and organs. This can lead to infertility. PID is a
vague term and can refer to viral, fungal, parasitic, though most often bacterial infections.

Chinese Medicine including Acupuncture Acupressure and Herbal Remedies will increase the immune system’s
ability to fight the infection and decrease inflammation in the reproductive tract and reduce pain. It will also help
prevent adhesions and scarring in the pelvic cavity.
