If the PID is caused by an STD, (and the female partner remains infected with this particular STD) it is possible she can transmit this to you through unprotected intercourse.

She has no STD's. she contracted through bacteria. so am i safe from infection from her PID? everything i researched said i should seek treatment. But if i cant get sick from PID why do i need treatment? what type of treatment am i supposed to get? regular STD screening?

Did she get treated for this bacterial infection BEFORE you engaged in unprotected sexual contact with her?

STD screening would be totally useless for you since your partner did not have an actual STD.

How would we know this? One typically has to finish the entire round of antibiotics to be cleared of a bacterial infection. Did she have enough bacteria remaining in her system to pass this onto you during the unprotected sexual encounter(s). We have no way of knowing this.
