I have PID - again... anyone have any good info on this?

So like my subject states, this is the 2nd time I've been diagnosed with PID or an 'upper genital tract infection' since i've had my Mirena inserted. I still really like my mirena and I'm planning on having another one inserted when all this excitement dies down...

but I am trying to figure out why this is happening and I have a theory or two, and i want to know if anyone can corroborate this...

1) my partner and I are non-monogamous. I sometimes engage sexually with other women, generally women i'm familiar with, but sometimes they are not so familiar. He tends to use protection but I have not always in the past... I usually only engage in manual stimulation, but some kissing and oral... i assume some infections can be spread this way...

2) my partner and i also regularly engage in anal sex and google told me that this can be a cause of PID. We have had a few accidental 'wrong hole' situations - is this in any way accurate?

I won't know definitively what caused my infection for a few days, when i get the results from my swabs, but i'm just trying to do some early sleuthing. Any help would be great.
