The uterus is 'swollen' always during menstruation.If you can put in a tampon then im assuming that your vaginal muscles are swollen probably due to infection.I would sat that its a possible local infection and maybe not PID until you have been examined.PID is a clinical diagnosis and other factors are involved.I would suggest that you see you gynaecologist and get examined.
