Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID) & Infertility

Chronic PID is a condition that is more often seen in the clinic than Acute PID.  Usually, only when it’s chronic that the patient seeks an alternative therapy since the antibiotics couldn’t do anything more.  In Chronic PID, many women can experience lower abdominal pain, spotting/bleeding, painful intercourse, low back pain and abnormal vaginal discharge.  The symptoms can sometimes be better and sometimes worse.  The cause is usually rooted in exposure to a STD like Chlamydia or Gonorrhea.  It can also be caused by an IUD.  Chronic PID can be damaging (leaving scarring) to the reproductive organs, especially the fallopian tubes affecting fertility.  It is important that this condition be treated quickly.  Acupuncture and Chinese herbs can provide great relief for this condition.  Acupuncture will relax and calm the reproductive  organs.  This will then calm the inflammation.  Many notice relief immediately.  Chinese Herbs will help clear the infection and dispel pain.  Lifestyle changes will help with healing.  Reducing stress and having an anti-inflammatory diet will go a long way.  1,000 mg of Fish oil with each meal will help with pain and inflammation.  Caffeine, (diet) sodas, spicy food, greasy food, sweet food and alcohol will not help!  Results area gradual and can be seen within 3-6 months.
