Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID).
This disease is an infection of the uterus, ovaries, fallopian tubes and other related areas. If it is not treated, it can cause scarring and lead to infertility, tubal pregnancies, and chronic pelvic pain. The pill can help prevent bacteria that cause PID from entering the uterus.
Most studies show that the pill does not increase the risk of breast cancer.
