PID is treated with antibiotics. If you make an appointment with us, we can prescribe you antibiotics to treat your PID. It's important that you finish the whole course of antibiotics that is prescribed to you, even if you start feeling better. Make sure that you tell your nurse or doctor if you are allergic to antibiotics, or if you could be pregnant. This will help them prescribe you the correct antibiotics.
It’s best not to have sex until 7 days after you finish your antibiotics. It’s a good idea for anyone you have sex with to get tested for STIs. If someone you have sex with has had treatment for PID, don’t have sex with them until 7 days after they finish their antibiotics. You don’t want to get a repeat case of PID.
If you have PID more than once, it can cause infertility, ectopic pregnancy, or long-term pain.
