Pelvic Inflammatory Disease - Home Treatment
Use the following home
treatment measures to support your recovery.
- Rest. Rest as much as possible until your symptoms
start to get better (usually a couple of days). Then return to your usual
- Pain medicine. Take regular doses of a
nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), such as
ibuprofen, for pain. If pain doesn't improve within 48 to 72 hours, tell your doctor.
It's very important that you don't have sexual relations until your treatment is completed. Otherwise, there is a risk that the infection will come back. Talk to your doctor about when it is safe for you to start having sex again.
