PID is treated with prescription antibiotics. Occasionally, PID is severe enough to require hospitalization. It is important to take all your medications as directed. If you miss any doses, your PID may not be cured. See your health care provider if this happens or if you still have symptoms after you finish your treatment. If your symptoms get worse, seek immediate medical care (e.g., go to the hospital emergency).
It is important to not have sex (even with a condom) until you and your sexual partners have completed treatment. If you do have sex during this time, you could pass the infection to your partners or get it again. If this happens, talk to your health care provider.
