Hello Anon

Thank you for writing.

Unfortunately for some women, there is no real cure for PID - it's something that needs ongoing treatment. If sexually transmitted as it often is (chlamydia and gonorrhea are the usual culprits) , it only takes one partner.

The primary treatment for PID is antibiotics. Your doctor may prescribe more than one type of antibiotic to treat the problem. Finish the entire dose of each medication, even if your symptoms disappear during treatment. Rest is also an essential part of the treatment for PID.

You may be hospitalized if the diagnosis is uncertain, you do not improve, or your symptoms are severe. In the hospital, antibiotics can be given by vein. In certain situations, surgery may be required to remove infected or damaged tissue.

What steps have you taken so far?
