Pelvic Inflammatory Disease

Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) is caused by a specific type of bacteria. Treatment for PID usually includes oral antibiotics, particularly if there is evidence of gonorrhea or chlamydia. In cases of severe infection, hospitalization may be required to administer intravenous antibiotics. Occasionally, surgery is necessary.

If you believe you have this condition, turn to the expert obstetricians and gynecologists at Jefferson. We will assess your condition and devise the best treatment, either medical or surgical.
