Chlamydia is one of the commonest reasons women get pelvic inflammatory disease, it's a sexually transmitted infection but not one you would ordinarily think of as an STD.  It's not the only way women get pelvic inflammatory disease, though.  Sometimes just a bacteria happens, and travels up the vagina into the uterus and from there on up.  BV (bacterial vaginitis) is also sometimes a reason for pelvic inflammatory disease.  I guess it is possible to get PID after a C-section, but presumably you were on antibiotics after the C, so my thought is that it is not from that.  Probably your partner should be tested for gardnerella (the bacteria in bacterial vaginitis) and chlamydia, if tests are available for those things, and/or treated along with you, so there will be no chance of passing anything back and forth.

Talk to your doctor, hon.  And be sure you were both tested for chlamydia and gardnerella, not just STDs.
