Question: What methods do doctors use to test for pelvic inflammatory disease? I talked to two different doctors. The doctor I go to said that she had tested me for pelvic inflammatory disease when doing a pap smear by checking for infections, but when I went to another doctor she said the only way to know if an individual has pelvic inflammatory disease is to have a sonogram. So I was wondering what methods doctors can use to diagnose the disease.

Answer: i know papsmear can be used but have to be cultured so it will takes days for the result. wherein sonogram, you can see right then and there if there is anything wrong..
