Signs or Symptoms of Pelvic Inflammatory Disease:

PID: DSTD (Excerpt)

Symptoms of PID vary from none to severe. Particularly when it is caused by chlamydial infection, PID may produce only mild symptoms or no symptoms at all, even while it is seriously damaging the internal reproductive organs. Because of the vague symptoms, PID goes unrecognized both by women and by their health care providers about two thirds of the time. Women who do have symptoms of PID most commonly have lower abdominal pain. Other signs and symptoms include fever, unusual vaginal discharge that may have a foul odor, painful intercourse, painful urination, irregular menstrual bleeding, and pain in the right upper abdomen (rare).

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease, NIAID Fact Sheet: NIAID (Excerpt)

The major symptoms of PID are lower abdominal pain and abnormal vaginal discharge. Other symptoms such as fever, pain in the right upper abdomen, painful intercourse, and irregular menstrual bleeding can occur as well. PID, particularly when caused by chlamydial infection, may produce only minor symptoms or no symptoms at all, even though it can seriously damage the reproductive organs.

Pelvic Inflammatory Disease: NWHIC (Excerpt)

The major symptoms of PID are lower abdominal pain and abnormal vaginal discharge. Other symptoms such as fever, pain in the right upper abdomen, painful intercourse, and irregular menstrual bleeding can occur as well. PID, particularly when caused by chlamydia, may produce only minor symptoms or no symptoms at all, even though it can seriously damage the reproductive organs. Women with "atypical pelvic inflammatory disease" experience only mild symptoms, unrecognized symptoms, or possibly, in many cases no symptoms ("silent pelvic inflammatory disease"). This more indolent but insidious form of pelvic inflammatory disease is less likely to be detected compared to symptomatic pelvic inflammatory disease, thus placing unsuspecting women at increased risk of disease sequelae.
