Question about Pelvic Inflammatory Disease?

I am 19 years old and I have been with my boyfriend for almost a year. I am 1000% sure neither of us has ever had an STD. Last week, he took me to the emergency room because I was experiencing extreme pelvic pain after sex. The pain started immediately after he went a little bit deeper than he should have. I have never been pregnant but I feel as if the pain I experienced rivaled labor pains. At the emergency room, I was diagnosed with PID. They gave me some pills, a shot, a prescription for Vicodin, and very little information, so when I returned I did some online research. It seems that PID is almost exclusively caused by complications from STDs. Since I am completely sure I have never had an STD, what caused PID for me? My boyfriend and I normally do not use a condom. Could it be that he is giving me bacteria and it's causing an infection? I am really worried about becoming infertile, so I need to be sure I don't get PID again. Therefore, I need to find out what caused this so it never happens again. Thank you in advance.

I'm sorry, I don't know too much about PID, but I do know a bit about dealing with doctors and such. Do you have a regular OB/Gyn? I would suggest that you visit them and/or call them about it and get some answers. If they will not be upfront with you and answer your questions, find a new doctor that will. This is your body and your future, you have a right to information. good luck, and I hope this all works out for you! let us know if we can help you with anything else! I haven't been able to check on this community recently for a while, but I'm back
