    Correct Answer
    D. Gonorrhea and chlamydia
    Explanation
    Gonorrhea and chlamydia are two sexually transmitted infections (STIs) that can lead to pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) if left untreated. PID is an infection of the reproductive organs in women that can cause severe complications such as infertility, chronic pelvic pain, and ectopic pregnancy. Both gonorrhea and chlamydia can spread from the cervix to the upper reproductive organs, causing inflammation and scarring. Early detection and treatment of these STIs are crucial in preventing the development of PID and its associated complications.
