Tampons after PID and difference between a period and withdrawal bleeding

Hi All,

I recently saw a new OB/GYN who after finding out that I had PID (pelvic inflammatory disease) 10 years ago advised me not to use tampons anymore. I used tampons prior to having PID and have used them since without issue. Has anyone else been told to stop using tampons after PID? If I've been fine for 10 years post PID (my PID was NOT caused by an STI). Is there really any risk to continue?

Also, can someone please explain the difference between a period when not on HBC and a withdrawal bleed when on HBC? I was trying to explain it to my boyfriend only to realize part-way through my jumbled, semi-explanation that I didn't really know...
