Pelvic inflammatory disease Treatments

Pelvic inflammatory disease: Treatments Inroduction

Treatment of pelvic inflammatory disease infection starts with prevention. Prevention measures include seeking regular medical care throughout the lifetime. Regular medical care allows a licensed health care professional to best evaluate the risks of contracting sexually transmitted diseases that causes pelvic inflammatory disease and regularly test for these diseases. These measures greatly increase the chances of diagnosing and curing pelvic inflammatory disease in its earliest stage before serious complications occur.

Other prevention measures include abstaining from sexual activity or having sex only within a mutually monogamous relationship in which neither partner is infected with pelvic inflammatory disease or another sexually transmitted disease. Latex condoms also provide some protection when used properly.

Treatment for mild pelvic inflammatory disease infection includes oral antibiotic medication. At least two antibiotics that treat a range of microorganisms that cause pelvic inflammatory disease are generally prescribed. It is vital to take all medications exactly as directed and finish all antibiotics even if symptoms disappear, unless directed otherwise by a physician. It is also important to abstain from sexual activity until the infection is cured and to diagnose and treat all sexual partners for any possible sexually transmitted diseases, even if they have no symptoms.

In more severe cases, hospitalization may be necessary. Treatment includes intravenous administration of antibiotics through a vein. Laparoscopic surgery may also be needed. In this surgical procedure, the physician inserts a special instrument through a small incision in the abdomen to remove infected tissues. Prompt diagnosis and treatment increases the chances of preserving fertility.
