Specific treatments will be determined by your doctor based on:

  • Your age, overall health, and medical history
  • Extent of the disease
  • Type and severity of the symptoms
  • Your tolerance for specific medications, procedures, or therapies
  • Expectations for the course of the disease
  • Your opinion or preference

Treatment for PID usually includes oral antibiotics. In cases of severe infection, hospitalisation may be required to administer intravenous antibiotics. Occasionally, surgery is necessary to drain pus or infected fluid around the lining of the fallopian tube or pelvic region.
