Untreated PID infections may lead to:

  • Infertility. As many as 10 percent of women with PID will not be able to have children as a result of scarring or damage to cells lining the fallopian tubes. 
     
  • Cystitis (inflammation of the urinary bladder) 
     
  • Ectopic (tubal) pregnancy (a pregnancy in the fallopian tube or elsewhere outside the womb)
     
  • Recurrent episodes of PID
     
  • Chronic pelvic pain

Hospitalization to treat PID may be recommended if the woman (1) is severely ill, e.g., nausea, vomiting, and high fever); (2) pregnant; (3) does not respond to or cannot take oral medications and needs intravenous antibiotics; (4) or has an abscess in the fallopian tube or ovary. If symptoms continue or if an abscess does not go away, surgery may be needed.
