Pain in your lower abdomen can be caused by many different things, so it’s important to get an exam and some tests to find out the cause. One thing that can cause this kind of pain in women is Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID). PID can happen if women have an infection like Gonorrhea or Chlamydia that is not treated. PID causes pain and swelling in the uterus and fallopian tubes and can cause infertility later in life.
