I am suffering from severe menstrual cramps for the past few months. I took scan yesterday and it was confirmed that there is moderate fluid in Pod. And the inference was Pelvic Inflammatory disease (PID). I browsed and came to know that PID is often caused by STD (Sexual Transmitted Disease. Is there any other reason for my pain during menstrual cramps Note: I am unmarried and had no sexual relationship till now. The pain occurs only during periods and not in any other days. I also took urine routine analysis on doctor's advice and the inference was Pus cells (7 - 8) and epithelial cells (3 - 5)

Menstrual pain many times without any infection, if infection is ther is become worst, in your case your having pid, which is not caused by std, take tt for infectionit will be ok.
You may use heating pad as it will ease away your cramps. Have high Vitamin B1 in your diet. You may take Mag Phos 6x,4 tabs thrice a day by dissolving in 1/4rth cup of warm water..
Well Grace , its not necessary that PID ends up only after STD, its a common finding amongst females having a history of PCOS, which you have also mentioned, also you have UTI, so you just need a symptomatic treatment very well dealt with Homoeopathy, consult with details about your thirst, appetite, stool, urine, menstrual cycles, any other physical disorder, mental stress for best advice
For pid need medicinal interferance period cramps 1) do massage to back & lower abdomen with warm sesame oil or suitable oil for 15 min. Afterwards take hot fomentation for 10 min. 2) 1 spoon caster oil with milk at bed time 3) do stretching exercise specially hip & lower back like ardhachakrasan.
You need antibiotics treatment with anti inflammatory. Then re evaluate.
