  • Lower abdominal pain: Most consistent symptom of PID

  • Increased vaginal discharge or mucopurulent urethral discharge

  • Dysuria: Usually without urgency or frequency

  • Cervical motion tenderness

  • Adnexal tenderness (usually bilateral) or adnexal mass

  • Intermenstrual bleeding

  • Fever, chills, nausea, and vomiting (less common)
