Rapper Cardi B admitted herself to a hospital on Wednesday, after suffering "real bad stomach problems for four days."

The "Bodak Yellow" rapper shared a Twitter picture of her hospital wristband and wrote that she had admitted herself after suffering abdominal pains.

"Honestly, cause I been having some real bad stomach problems for four days, I went to the ER last night," she penned, alongside a crying face emoji.

Stomach pains can be caused by a multitude of conditions such as indigestion, infections, and diseases such as cancer and pelvic inflammatory disease, also known as pelvic inflammatory disorder (PID).

What is pelvic inflammatory disease?

Pelvic inflammatory disorder is an infection of the female reproductive system, mainly the uterus, fallopian tubes, and ovaries.

Women usually seek medical treatment when they suffer symptoms including lower abdominal pain, foul vaginal discharge, fever, burning with urination, painful intercourse, bleeding after sex, or irregular menstruation.

Cardi didn't share her diagnosis with her followers, so we don't know the cause of her abdominal pain. We are not assuming she is diagnosed with PID.

Untreated PID can result in longterm complications of the female reproductive system including infertility, scarring, ectopic pregnancy, chronic pelvic pain, and cancer.

What causes PID?

The disease is caused by bacteria that spreads from the vagina and cervix to the uterus, ovaries and fallopian tubes. The disorder usually affects promiscuous women who have multiple sex partners or one sex partner who is burning.

40 percent of women diagnosed with PID also have a chlamydial infection or gonorrhea. Women who douche frequently can inadvertently push bacteria into their upper reproductive organs.

How is PID diagnosed?

PID is diagnosed during a pelvic examination, cervical observation, laparoscopy, or tissue biopsy. A definitive diagnosis of PID is made when pus is found in the fallopian tubes during surgery or during ultrasound.

How can I prevent PID?

Your doctor will advise no sex until the infection is resolved. If you are a sex worker, you will be advised to use protection such as condoms or barrier methods. You should also get tested regularly for sexually transmitted diseases (STDs).

Seek medical attention if you are experiencing symptoms of PID.

R&B crooner Usher teased his new single "Confessions Pt. 3" during a live set at the Cricket Lounge, where he previewed songs from his upcoming album.

The 41-year-old was the target of lawsuits from multiple women and one man, each accusing him of giving them herpes. The lawsuits were quietly settled out of court last year. The terms of the settlements - and whether any cash was paid out - were not disclosed.

But a clip from his live set left his fans wondering if he's trying to tell them something. Usher seems to allude to a "sickness" on "Confessions Pt. 3".

    "Remember that time I was sitting up sick, couldn't sleep on the middle of the night? / And you said bae let me take you to the ER / I said 'Nah, Imma be alright / Well, the next day I found out from f*cking around that the sickness I had was life / And I was fixed with the decision to keep it / Knowing I had to get rid of it, rid of it, live with it / He don't know, I don't know, we had to deal with it."

The song concludes with: "That's the test to see if you're strong."

Then, addressing the audience directly, Usher says, "You realize what I just told you? You don't realize it, huh? Well, you can play it back."
